Turkey Salad Stuffed Tomatoes

This is a great way to use up the little bits of turkey that are too scraggly for a sandwich. It works well with dark or white meat, but I like to use a mix. (It also works great with chicken.) The tomatoes make for a fun presentation, but are not necessary. You could also fill avocado halves, or plate in a pile on some greens. It could be used for a sandwich but it is a little loose.

Turkey Salad Stuffed Tomatoes
Serves 4
1 small carrot, diced
1 stalk celery, diced
2 cups cooked turkey, chopped
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons fresh parsley, chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
4 tomatoes
3 cups mixed greens, chopped romaine lettuce or spinach (washed and dried)

  1. Combine all ingredients but the tomatoes and greens in a bowl and mix well.
  2. Taste and adjust seasonings, add mayonnaise, to taste
  3. Cut the top 1/3 of off the tomatoes (remove the stem and core from the tops, chop and you can use them in a green salad or make some salsa with the scooped out tomato insides)
  4. Using a paring knife, carefully cut around the inside edge of each tomato. Using a spoon, scoop out the inside of each tomato and reserve for another use. (I chop and give them to my toddler for lunch.)
  5. Place 1/2 cup of mixed greens in each bowl.
  6. Scoop 1/4 to 1/3 cup turkey salad in to each hollowed out tomato
  7. Place tomato on the greens in each bowl.
  8. Depending on the size of your tomatoes, you may have leftover turkey salad. Just enjoy it on crackers or toast or plain in a bowl.
