This is a spectacular recipe to use for brunch with a full-size tomato or as a finger food-type appetizer at a party (with grape or cherry tomatoes). It’s easy, and looks beautiful. You can serve tomatoes stuffed with Chicken Salad, Egg Salad, Tuna Salad, or Cream Cheese or try some of each! Elegant and scrumptious, this is a terrific brunch option.
TOOLS FOR A WELL-EQUIPPED KITCHEN
Every kitchen should have the very best tools you can afford. At the least, buy yourself a good set of pans, a slow cooker, an Instant Pot, measuring cups and spoons, and the best set of chef’s knives you can afford. Also be sure to get a full sized food processor and a mini food processor. These tools are essential for any well-equipped kitchen!
Stuffed Tomatoes Recipe
This recipe covers the method, but you will need to look at our Tarragon Chicken Salad recipe for the ingredients of the chicken salad stuffing.
- 1 large tomato or 8 grape tomatoes (per person)
Tarragon Chicken Salad
- 1/2 cup Tarragon Chicken Salad (per person)
- Slice a small slice off the bottom of the tomato so it sits flat on your plate.
- With a pairing knife, cut the stem and hard core out of the tomato, slicing around the center of the tomato, leaving about 2 inches on the outside. You should be making a hole in the tomato big enough to fit the amount of Chicken Salad you want to put in it.
Stuff the Chicken Salad into the hole and garnish with sliced green onion tops or parsley. (Alternatively, you can use Egg Salad or Tuna Salad as a stuffing.)

If you would like to make these as appetizers, use Cherry Tomatoes and reduce the filling accordingly.
