Mediterranean Tuna Stuffed Tomato

Mediterranean Tuna Stuffed Tomato created by lazyme

This is far from the traditional tuna salad. This tastes like summer if you use garden fresh tomatoes. A great lunch idea and can be made ahead. I served this with crunchy bread sticks and fresh fruit. Created for RSC #6 Contest.

  • Place tuna, green & red peppers, capers, pistachios, parsley flakes, and purple onion in medium size bowl.
  • Make dressing by placing all ingredients into a blender or mini chopper; pulse until oil is emulsified.
  • Pour over tuna mixture.
  • Add parmesan and mix well.
  • Chill until ready to serve.
  • Cut tomatoes; place stem side down and cut into wedges without cutting all of the way through the tomato; gently spread wedges to form bowl for the tuna salad.
  • Fill each tomato with a tad more than ½ cup of the tuna.
  • Serve on a piece of leaf lettuce to add color to the plate.

    Since you're not using mayonnaise, could you use tuna packed in oil so it's hopefully not dry?

    This was fantastic and really hit the spot! I had some beautiful ripe garden tomatoes, which were perfect in this dish. I also added some minced kalamata olives, which is the only change I made. What a wonderful lunch I enjoyed! I wished I'd taken a photo, but I ate it too fast! Made for Culinary Quest 2016.

    Made a 1/2 recipe of this and cut each tomato in half so we each got a half with Recipe #428353 for lunch. Really good, bright flavours here. I especially enjoyed the addition of pistachios here. Thanks.

    Yum! This was great. I've never had a tuna salad before that didn't have mayo so this was a refreshing contrast. After reading the previous reviews, I added a few more pistachios that I really enjoyed. Since I halved the recipe the ingredients were too few to reach the blade in my mini processor, lol, so I just manually crushed them a bit. Thanks Susie for a nice treat. Made by an Unruly Under the Influence for ZWT6.
