This month the search is on for salad recipes. Ours is a bit different and super duper easy, with only a few ingredients and great for a hot day.
Tuna-Egg Salad Stuffed Tomato
A nice fresh tomato
1 can of your favorite tuna
1 hard boiled egg
about 2 Tablespoons mayonnaise, or enough to make it a little creamy
small dash of salt and pepper, to taste
Directions: Remove the stem from the tomato and use a sharp knife to slice down about 3/4 of the way from the top. Do it again as if you are quartering it. Then slice each of those quarters down one time. It should look like a flower beginning to open when you are done, but still hold together. Set on a fancy plate. You can lay some lettuce under it if you want.
Mash up the egg with a fork and mix in the tuna, spices and mayo. Put a good-sized scoop into the tomato. You’ll be able to fill more than one tomato, depending on the size of the tomato and how much filling you use in each one.
You can add a little topping such as paprika, chives, cayenne pepper, crumbled bacon, shredded cheese, or use your imagination.
Sorry we don’t have a picture of one we made ourselves, but when you’re done, your tuna-egg stuffed salad should look sorta like one of these two, that we found on the web.
I have another recipe just for our pup friends. I hope you’ll
get over forgive me that it’s not a salad. Although there is tomato in it…
