Not quite South Beach Diet, but it was inspired! Instead of crabmeat I used tuna and put a base of three bean salad in the bottom.
2 (5 oz) tins tuna in water
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 tablespoons red onion, minced
salt and pepper to taste
2 large beefsteak tomatoes
two sprigs of cilantro to garnish, optional
Cut the top off the tomatoes and scoop out the flesh and the seeds. Rinse and drain.
In a small bowl mix together the tuna, mayonnaise, and onion. Add salt andp pepper to taste. Scoop into the hollowed out tomato then garnish with cilantro if desired.
I had leftover three bean salad from last night’s dinner so I put a scoop of beans in the bottom of the tomato and topped it off with tuna salad. A great variation (I just thought of it) is to alternate layers of beans with tuna! Delicious.
To make the Three Bean Salad (so easy!)
1 (15 oz) tin black beans
1 (15 oz) tin red kidney beans
1 (10 oz) tin garbanzo beans (or pinto beans)
1/2 cup balsamic vinaigrette
1/3 cup red onion, minced
Rinse and drain the beans and put them in a large bowl. Add the onion and the vinaigrette. Toss to coat thoroughly.
