Stuffed Tomatoes Recipe
- 24 grape or cherry tomatoes or one large tomato if you are making it a main dish
Tarragon Chicken Salad Stuffing
- 1 12.5-ounce can cooked chicken drained
- 2 tablespoons Miracle Whip Salad Dressing or mayonnaise
- ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 teaspoon dried tarragon leaves or 1 tablespoon fresh tarragon, chopped
- 2 stalks celery chopped
- 2 green onions white and tender green parts only, sliced small
- 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.)cc
