      For the Filling: Combine the goat cheese and cream in a medium bowl. Using an electric mixer, whip together the cheese and the cream. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

      For the Herb Oil: Combine the herbs in a food processor and pulse to chop the herbs. With the machine running add the oil, salt, and pepper. Transfer to a small bowl, cover with plastic wrap and set aside.

      To serve: Using a serrated knife, cut the tomatoes. Top each tomato with a spoonful of the goat cheese mixture. Place a few tomatoes on a serving plate, drizzle with herb oil, and sprinkle with walnuts. Serve.

        I used Heirloom tomatoes in different colors and created a double layer - very pretty. The toasted nuts really make a difference - don't cheat - do toast them. I omitted the mint and just used basil with a little parsley thrown in. It was wonderful. I have also prepared this using small tomatoes -scoop out the core and stuff with the goat cheese filling - makes great looking appetizers for a party although the tomatoes don't taste as good as the fresh heirloom variety from the farmers market. Recipe is a keeper.
