Extra: Quick Stuffed Tomatoes
When your garden comes in and you have lots of fresh, juicy tomatoes, here's an idea for lunch. Combine one can (6-1/2 oz) drained tuna with 1/4 cup diced celery. Add 2-teaspoons pickle relish and 1/3 cup mayonnaise. Then cut from top of tomato (stem on bottom); cutting down to make four pieces, but not cutting down all the way. Then fill the tomatoes with tuna mixture. Makes 4 stuffed tomatoes.
