Stuffed tomatoes have long been a favorite of professional caterers and home entertainers alike, since they are quick and easy to assemble and universally adored by guests. Here, the tomatoes are stuffed with a well seasoned mixture of cottage cheese and tuna, then served with an arugula and orange salad. The tomatoes are also good on their own as part of an appetizer station or alongside eggs for a special brunch.
