Stuffed Tomatoes With Tuna 

Stuffed Tomatoes With Tuna

Our Delectable Tuna Stuffed Tomatoes are perfect for a fancy luncheon or whenever you want something fresh and tasty. We recommend heirloom tomatoes for the most color and flavor, but any homegrown, vine-ripened tomato will do. Serve up your stuffed tomato on a bed of fresh lettuce leaves. You can garnish it with a sprig of flat leaf parsley, as we show in the photo if you have some on hand. This is a terrific way to use up part of your tomato harvest when you are running out of ideas for them. Heirloom tomatoes offer you lots of different shapes and colors to work with. We have used Caro Rich, a nice round orange tomato, in the photo, but you can use any heirloom you like. If you do not grow your own, try your local farmers' market.
