Ingredients

  • 1 large Jacksonville, Texas tomato
  • 1 small can tuna packed in water drained
  • 1/2 stalke celery chopped fine
  • 1 teaspoon Old Bay Seafood Seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon chopped pickles sweet or dill
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 green onion chopped
  • 1/3 cup cheddar cheese shredded (optional - garnish)

Instructions

  • Drain tuna and place in a medium size bowl
  • Using a fork, flake tuna into small pieces
  • Add remaining ingredients
  • Quarter whole tomato into 16 slices; if you prefer, you can hollow out the seeds, but why?
  • Place scoop of tuna salad on tomato
  • Garnish with cheese
  • Place tomato on bed of lettuce and enjoy!

Notes

  • This is one of those silly recipes that isn't a recipe at all...just an assembly of complimentary foods!
  • This is a great food to take "on the go"; simply prepare it in a chilled "to-go" container; you might want to put a cold freezer block on top, but if it's going to be eaten within 2 hours and is kept in air conditioned area, it should be just fine. 
  • If you don't care for tomato seeds, just hollow out the tomato prior to cutting it into quarters.
