Cherry Tomatoes Stuffed with Tuna Salad Recipe
2 pints cherry tomatoes

1 small onion finely diced
1/3 cup good mayonnaise
Salt & pepper (to taste)
In a large bowl, mix the tuna, celery, onions, mayo, salt and pepper together and set aside.
With a sharp knife, cut off the top of each tomato. Using a melon baller, hollow out each tomato and discard the insides.

Chill at least 30 minutes before serving.
Alternatively, you can stuff with crab or lobster meat salad. Or, you can double the amount of salad and stuff larger tomatoes for a hearty, summertime meal.
