Stuffed Tomato

The only time I buy fresh tomatoes is during the summer, when I can get them from the farmers market. I'll do canned in the winter, but not those red plastic things we get in the groceries around here.

One of my favorite summer meals is tomato stuffed with ... well ... stuff. Cottage cheese is a favorite, but so is tuna salad.

Lookit that parsley garnish. Ain't that cute? Backyard herbs FTW.

I make my tuna salad like so:

  • tuna canned in water, drained
  • diced celery
  • slivered water chestnuts
  • onion powder
  • salt
  • mayonnaise
I core the tomato and slice it almost through into wedges, the spread the wedges into a flower and plop the stuffing in. A little pepper, a little garnish for the eye, and NOM!

Tuna salad - yes! That other stuff, no thanks.

I cut the tomato in half. Core it out, mix the innards with the tuna fish, celery, and a mite of mayo- and stuff it back into the shell. Top it off with some cheese and balsamic vinegar...

(Sorry, I had to go eat it right now.)

So, Dan, no cottage cheese for you, eh?

Dr. Ackerman, your version sounds delish! I'm not much of a fan of balsamic vinegar, but you inspire me to give it another go sometime!
