Smoked Salmon Egg Salad Filled Tomato

This egg salad is just as delicious served with whole-grain crackers, but it is beautiful served in hollowed-out tomatoes.

Ingredients:

  • 4 large hard-boiled eggs (use higher omega-3 eggs, if available); shells removed, chopped
  • 2 small stalks celery, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
  • 4 ounces diced smoked salmon
  • 1/4 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon dill weed (dried) or 1 tablespoon fresh dill, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 medium tomatoes, tops cut off and hollowed out

Preparation:
1. In a medium bowl, combine chopped eggs, celery, onion, salmon, and mayonnaise.
2. Season with dill, salt, and pepper. Refrigerate at least 2 hours to allow flavors to combine.
3. Spoon egg mixture into hollowed-out tomatoes. Cover well and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Yield:
8 filled tomatoes (4 servings)
