Chicken Salad is always a favorite. This version of chicken salad stuffed into tomatoes is perfect served for a luncheon, shower, or a light supper with friends.
Nine times out of ten if I ask my husband what he’d like for lunch or supper during the summer, his answer will be, “some kind of chicken salad”. I can depend on it to the point that usually before I even ask him, I know exactly what kind of chicken salad I can make for him.
Sometimes, I serve him his favorite chicken salad with grapes and that makes our entire meal and then sometimes, I decide that we need just a little something extra. That’s when I turn to this recipe for chicken salad stuffed tomatoes that is out of this world delicious!
I make the chicken salad with almond slivers, celery, onion, and celery salt as the main flavors. Then, I core a medium tomato and stuff it as full as possible, to the point of it spilling over. The tomato adds so much to the chicken salad and the flavors just pare perfectly together.
The great thing about this recipe is that you can easily make it ahead and store in the refrigerator ready for serving when you host a luncheon or shower, or even make them smaller for hand-held appetizers in petit tomatoes for a party. They are just so versatile!
Here’s my chicken salad stuffed tomatoes recipe. I hope you love them as much as we do!

YUMMY!! Gorgeous Robyn! LOVE your new look!!! So beautiful!
Thank you so much, Wendy! xo
This looks incredible! WIsh I had some in my fridge right now!
There aren’t many things that I don’t enjoy cooking but I would have to say that my favorite thing to make are probably pound cakes.
I love to make Peach Cobbler. My recipe is a little different from the usual milk, butter, flour recipe. It’s so easy, and ALWAYS tastes delicious. I am asked for the recipe every time I take it to a potluck.
I really don’t have one thing, I just love to bake , some flops and some savers. I just love being in the kitchen being busy and experimenting. i’m so happy that it is summer and we will have the garden to play with soon.
Enjoying your chicken salad recipes! This sounds like another good one to try. You know I’m pinning it!
Can I ask, what do you do with the part of the tomato that has been cored out? Does it get mixed in with the chicken salad?
