Be sure to see my 8 Course Lobster Tail Dinner Menu using this beautiful

Recipe Type: tomato, garnish, dinner party, buffet, vegetable
Total Time: 10 min
Yield: 1 tomato rose
1 red tomato , medium size
basil leaf for garnish (optional)
Using a sharp knife, start at the stem end of a tomato, peel the skin with very little flesh attached in a continuous unbroken strip
1/2-inch to 3/4-inch wide, like peeling an apple.
Carefully roll the skin up, shiny side
out being careful not to break the strip. Turn upside down,
adjust the roll if necessary to resemble a flower and set on a serving plate...
it is impressive.
