Tuna Stuffed Tomatoes
Using simple and fresh ingredients like sweet tomatoes, crunchy bell peppers, savory tuna, fresh tarragon and olive oil, this light dish is easy to prepare and just plain delicious!
Prep Time: 30-40 minutes
Servings: Serves 4
2 cans or pouches (5 oz) Bumble Bee® Tuna, drained and flaked
½ cup dry bread crumbs
1 tablespoon diced onion
1 tablespoon diced green bell pepper
½ teaspoon chopped fresh tarragon
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
¼ teaspoon salt
4 large tomatoes
Preheat oven to 400°F. Cut a thin slice from the top of each tomato and scoop out most of the pulp leaving a thick shell so that the tomato will hold its shape. Invert on paper towel and set aside. Combine tuna, bread crumbs, onion, bell pepper, tarragon, olive oil, pepper and salt. Stuff each tomato with tuna salad mixture. Place in lightly greased pan and bake for 15 - 20 minutes. Garnish with tarragon as desired.
