Tuna-Stuffed Tomatoes are fresh and light, and make a great main course for lunch or can replace a salad at dinner. Fresh tomatoes, stuffed with tuna, cucumbers and dressed with oil and vinegar. They are juicy and full of flavor. Serve with toast on the side.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 4 large round tomatoes
  • 2 - 6 oz cans tuna (water or oil packed)
  • 1 small cucumber (5 inches)
  • 2-3 Tbsp red onion, finely chopped
  • 6-8 black olives
  • dash of sherry vinegar
  • drizzle of olive oil
  • 4 tsp shredded Cheese (Parmesan or a dry sheep cheese)
  • 1 boiled egg - optional

Preparation:

This Tuna-Stuffed Tomatoes recipe makes 4 servings.

Open cans of tuna and drain them, squeezing excess water or oil from the tuna. Flake tuna into a bowl.

Chop Cucumber and black olives into small bits. Chop red onion finely. Add to tuna and mix. Splash a bit of sherry vinegar on the tuna mixture and drizzle olive oil over top. Mix thoroughly. Add salt if needed.

Note: Optionally, boil an egg, cool and chop and add to tuna mixture.

Rinse and dry tomatoes. Cut off the tops of the tomatoes, then cut out the flesh, leaving a cavity large enough to fill with tuna mixture. Spoon mixture into tomatoes, allowing it to mound on top.

Sprinkle tops of each tomato with cheese and place under broiler until cheese melts. Serve immediately with toasted French-style bread.
