Toxic Tomatoes

Toxic Tomatoes recipe

Let the surprising kick of these easy appetizers, with deli chicken salad and a dash of horseradish, creep up on your Halloween guests.



  1. With sharp knife, cut 1/4-inch off stem side of each tomato and 1/8-inch off bottoms. Using melon baller or small spoon, remove insides of tomatoes; discard.
  2. Make cuts in ends of each green onion piece; place in bowl of ice water until curly.
  3. In small bowl, mix chicken salad and horseradish. Place 1 teaspoon chicken salad in each tomato. Place 1 green onion brush in top center of each tomato for stem.

A narrow baby spoon works well to spoon the chicken salad into each tomato.

Instead of chicken salad, try making these tomatoes with another deli salad.
