Tuna Stuffed Tomatoes

Tuna stuffed glorious summer tomatoes!

Go to your local farmer’s market and pick up some of these beauties!

Tuna salad filling (you can use one of your favorites or mine):

I used 3 tsp of an asiago cheese and artichoke dip (you can use Greek yogurt or mayo-or nothing here), 2 five oz cans of white tuna, 2 tsp finely chopped of each celery & red onion. then add blk pepper, cayenne pepper & garlic powder-pinches of each! Mix together.

I used a mellon baller to hollow out the tomatoes. You just want to make sure you get the wet seeds and guts out of the tomatoes before you stuff them.

Once tomatoes are hollowed fill them with the tuna salad and then store in the fridge until ready to eat!

This made 4 med tomatoes plus about a cup of left over of tuna salad for me to eat later in the week or you could make 6 to 7 total stuffed med tomatoes.

When ready to serve top with evoo, lemon juice and fresh basil.

I hope you enjoy this one!! We had these last night with steak on the grill. Lots of protein!!!
