Tuna in a Tomato (Gluten Free!)

I saw this recipe in Real Simple: Meals Made Easy and it seemed like a super easy and summery lunch. It also took about a grand total of 5 minutes to make, which is also a plus.

While the tomatoes were tasty, there was still something lacking. I think next time around, I might leave out the parsley and add a lot more lemon juice. Despite the lemon juice and all the capers and kalamatas I added the salad it was missing a bit of tanginess.

Tuna in a Tomato (makes 6 servings) inspired by Real Simple: Meals Made Easy p. 93

  • 6 large tomatoes
  • 3 6-oz. cans of tuna, drained
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • 3 Tablespoons capers, roughly chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves, roughly chopped
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 Tablespoons Greek Yogurt
  • 1 Tablespoon high quality mayonnaise (I like Hollywood Safflower Mayonnaise)
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
With a paring knife, cut out and discard the stem of each tomato. Using a spoon, hallow out the tomatoes, leaving each with a 1/4-inch shell, and transfer the pulp to a medium bowl. Add the remaining ingredients to the tomato pulp and toss gently. Spoon the mixture back into the tomatoes and serve.
