Tuna salad stuffed tomato

Ok, you got me…I really made this for lunch weeks ago but since I was a lazy summer blogger you’re getting the recipe now. Better late then never, right? Sometimes I make things and don’t blog about it. First rule about writing a food blog–always blog. Eh, I break that rule all the time.

This is something that is soooo easy yet it looks really nice if you have guests over and it’s great for hot weather–which is typically all year in Miami! My aunt always makes this when I visit Italy and I always forget how well tuna and tomato pair until I eat it again. You want to make this, trust me.

Here’s what you need:

2 large tomatoes, I like beefsteak or heirloom

Tuna salad-everyone has their special way to make it. I like chopped celery, scallion, red onion, a teaspoon of dijon mustard, and mayo. Make it how you like!

Here’s what you do:

Cut the top off of the tomato and scoop out the insides. Fill with tuna salad. Um, that’s it! Told ya it was simple! I don’t lie to you.

Serve with some toasted bread, if you so desire.

This can also be topped with cheese and baked in the oven so the tomato roasts and the cheese becomes gooey and bubbly!

Happy cooking! or non-cooking I should say 😉
