Tomatoes Stuffed with Cucumber Salad

These Tomatoes Stuffed with Cucumber Salad is a classic recipe of my family. I scoop out the tomato filling and cut them into cubes. I mix the tomatoes with cucumbers, celery, corn, bell peppers, and a mayonnaise dressing. Refrigerate these salad tomatoes for a few hours. Serve chilled as an appetizer, a salad, or a meal in itself. These pair well with Filipino barbecues or different entrees. This is an Asian in America recipe by Elizabeth Ann Quirino.
