Crab Salad Stuffed Tomatoes
These fun and easy appetizers were inspired by my belief that if you present a
child with attractively plated food in a fun way you can get the child to eat just about anything -
I had no tuna, no eggs and wanted to make a quick lunch for my daughter - she eats tuna salad and egg salad - but crab salad? (Crab meat I had - coupled it with some mayo, chopped capers, diced celery and a little salt, pepper and old bay seasoning, instant crab salad)
All I did was cut the tops off some cherry tomatoes, scoop out the insides (which, as an added healthy bonus, she actually ate all the pulp calling it 'fresh tomato soup') and stuffed the tomato shells with the crab salad - she ate them all!! These look so pretty and you can do them ahead - and of course, you could stuff them with egg salad or tuna salad or whatever...
