Stuffed Tomato with Tuna , Potato and Pickled thyme Salad

Thought this would be the perfect time to do a healthy post. Not that I made any resolutions … but I’m sure there are many who are trying to cut out the sweet and bring in the healthy. I too would’ve made that resolution but it would be futile ! I love my sugar, but then again I also love everything else that’s healthy. Got to find the balance somewhere right. This salad has always been a favourite at my table. The variations to this one are endless and you can put just about anything you like in there. Different versions for every occasion. This one is with potatoes and pickled thyme (which i found at the Lebanese store) and some spicy pickled chillies, some green bell peppers and onion to bring in the crunchiness and a squeeze of lime to lift it all up.


  • Low Fat Mayonnaise
  • Canned Tuna in water
  • Boiled Potatoes, cubed
  • Green Pepper, cubed
  • Pickled Lebanese Thyme
  • Red Onion, finely chopped
  • Pickled Green Chilli
  • 4 Whole ripe Tomatoes
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 lime

Half the tomatoes and scoop out the segments and seeds. Reserve for later. Mix in all the ingredients except the tuna. Mix that in at he last so it wont totally flake away and get lost in the salad. Stuff the tomato halves and garnish with some chillis and serve either cold or at room temperature.

Oh, fantastic little bites! I am also intrigued by the pickled thyme…pickling an herb is such an odd concept for me to wrap my brain around…but I like it. These sound so delish and full of flavor!

Hi Kate,
Happy New Year to you as well, may this year will bring even more joy and happiness to your family.

your tomato and tuna combination is quite tempting. Love the pickle chili on top.

Kajal, thanks for stopping by my blog! I love the name Serendipity too. I used to have a friend in DC who named his daughter Kajal. I tried to get him to name her Kate, but (sigh…) he insisted on Kajal. It’s a really pretty name too, I think. Aren’t you lucky to have both of them!

These tomatoes look perfect for this time of the year–clean, healthy tastes. I don’t know the pickled thyme. I’ll look out for it!

I’m glad I found your blog.

This looks absolutely delicious! I love the idea of a stuffed tomato. And I love thyme – I’ve been using it in everything lately. I bet it’s great pickled.

That’s sure a good way to kick-start the new year. Happy New Year to you and your family.
