This recipe could not have been easier, let me tell you!! Who doesn’t know how to make Tuna salad, or stuff a tomato?! This is also the most adaptable recipe to fit your taste. So many options for fill-ins, the sky is the limit.
Ingredients: One Medium size tomato ~ 1 can of tuna or chicken (whichever you prefer) ~ Tzatziki (I use this in place of mayo, another good alternative is greek yogurt) ~ red onion ~ salt ~ pepper ~ crushed garlic ~ lettuce ~ Bacon bits ~
Chopped Walnuts ~ Celery ~ Pickles [this is my favorite but I was out 🙁 ] ~ cranberries ~ grapes
Okay, okay you get the point, you can pretty much add anything based on your calorie needs.
1. Mix Tuna, red onion, garlic and tzatziki and add seasonings to taste.
2. Cut the top of the tomato like you are carving a pumpkin. Scoop out the insides (save them for a salad, add to the tuna mix, or toss)
3. Fill tomato with lettuce, add tuna mixture and sprinkle top with bacon bits.
I cut the tomato into eights and gobbled up post workout with a protein shake.
I will be making this again but I may use a thinner or smaller tomato to allow all the flavors to really pop, versus it being mostly tomato.
