Tuesday's Romance of Cookery and Housekeeping

Stuffed Tomatoes
  • 2 Large FIRM tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup diced cucumbers
  • 1 bunch chopped green onions, chopped fine
  • 1 celery spear, chopped fine
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup celery seed dressing (see side bar for this recipe)
Thoroughly wash the tomatoes*. Slice off the top of each tomato. Cut out stem area and dice the remaining pieces. Carefully spoon out the seeds. In a mixing bowl mix together your tomato top pieces, seeds (optional – I like them though), cucumbers, green onions, celery and salt. Toss together well. Warm the dressing for a few seconds in the microwave and then toss with the vegetables. This works best if you mix together all the ingredients and chill for 2 hours before stuffing the tomatoes. Serve on a bed of lettuce.

*The original recipe called for peeling the tomatoes.
