Tuna Salad-Stuffed Tomatoes with Arugula

The tuna in this great-looking stuffed tomato recipe isn’t your typical mayo-based affair. The sherry vinaigrette does double duty: it adds fresh flavor to the tuna filling and also dresses the baby arugula and white bean salad.

Fresh, sun-ripened tomatoes not only taste wonderful, offer a range of health benefits as well!

Forget ketchup and cans—summer has truly arrived when the ruby glow of vine-ripe tomatoes graces your garden and the shelves of your local farmers’ market or grocery store. Luscious, juicy tomatoes not only taste wonderful, but also offer a range of health benefits for everybody: an excellent source of vitamin C, plus vitamin A, potassium and fiber. Tomatoes are also high in lycopene, which works with other vitamins and minerals to aid in disease prevention. Research suggests that the combination of nutrients in tomatoes may help prevent cardiovascular disease and prostate cancer. And although cooked tomatoes have less vitamin C, their lycopene is more available and antioxidant activity is undiminished by cooking. This collection highlights recipes that showcase all the magnificent aspects of the amazing tomato in its cooked and raw forms.
