Tuna Stuffed Tomatoes

Momma likes to have salads but needs some substance in them.

Momma Explains: Salads are great for your health and diet but just lettuce does not have the staying power I need to get through the day. I have found that by adding a protein and varied elements, you can have a healthy and filling salad. These also make a very nice presentation. If you can manage a little wine with this, try a Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay.

Tuna Stuffed Tomatoes

Cut off tops of 4 tomatoes, whatever the supermarket has that looks ripe. I often get Roma or Plum. Remove the seeds and liquid. In a bowl mix one can of tuna( again, it is your preference) with 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise, one tablespoon of vidalia dressing, 1/4 teaspoon celery salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, chopped celery and (optional) some small diced onion . If you are a big mayo fan then you can add more mayo, I prefer to add more vidalia dressing if I add anything more. Mix all ingredients and stuff the tomatoes. I will also boil eggs and place the sliced hard boiled eggs either on top of the tomato or as a plate garnish. If you place the tomatoes on a bed of lettuce, it really looks like a feast.
