  1. Preheat broiler to very hot. Set a rack on the closest position to the source of heat. Line a baking sheet or broiler pan with foil.
  2. Remove any stems from the cherry tomatoes. Turn them, stem-side down, on the prepared pan. Carefully slice off the top third of each tomato, reserving these pieces of another use.
  3. Combine the remaining ingredients. Cover the cut surface of each tomato with about a teaspoon of the mayonnaise mixture, mounding it slightly.
  4. Place the tomatoes under the broiler and broil for about a minute, until the topping is lightly browned. Arrange the tomatoes on a platter and serve.
