Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes

Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes | ChopChop


This might seem like a fussy grown-up recipe—but it’s actually really fun to make and serve little stuffed foods! Don’t like tomatoes? Top cucumber slices or bell pepper squares, or stuff celery sticks with tuna instead.

cherry tomatoes
recipe Summery Tuna Salad
1⁄2 cup
Any-Herb Pesto (for drizzling, if you like )


  1. Cut a thin slice off the top of each tomato. (You can set these aside to eat later.)
  2. Using the spoon or melon baller, scoop out the tomato pulp and discard it (or set it aside to eat later). As you hollow each tomato, turn it upside down and put it on the paper towels to drain as you prepare the rest.
  3. Just before serving, spoon a little bit of the tuna salad into each tomato and drizzle with a teaspoon of pesto (if you like).
