Salad-Stuffed Campari Tomatoes served like a box of candy

salad-stuffed campari tomatoes

These adorable salad-stuffed Campari tomatoes are like a box of chocolates, but totally not! In any case, there’s no reason why you can’t have a bit of fun when serving these delightful bites of goodness.

  • Yield: 9 stuffed tomatoes 1x


Units Scale
  • 9 Campari tomatoes
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • 1 1/2 cups salad(s) of choice (see Notes below for ideas!)
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic glaze/reduction
  • 9 tiny sprigs fresh basil or mint


  1. Cut a sliver off the bottom of each tomato. Cut tops off the tomatoes. Scoop the pulp out of the insides of tomatoes—both the top and bottom portions. Try a grapefruit spoon for this. (Reserve tomato flesh for another use, like making salsa.)
  2. Drain tomatoes of excess liquid on a cooling rack set on a rimmed sheet pan. (Or pat tomato insides with a clean kitchen towel or paper towel to soak up moisture.) Place the tomato slivers into the scooped-out tomatoes for extra sturdiness. Add a pinch of salt to each.
  3. Firmly stuff each tomato with salad. Place on the tomato tops. Add a tiny drop of balsamic glaze and basil or mint on top of each stuffed tomato. And serve.


Salad ideas: grilled corn & orzo salad; plant-based pesto pasta salad; grilled veggie salad w/plant-based feta; classic potato salad; spicy black bean salad; white bean & herb salad; curried chickpea salad; citrusy quinoa salad; or tabbouleh salad.
