Probably the coolest (or hottest) thing you can do with a tomato. Serves 6 people.
- 6 large tomatoes
- 1/4 pound genoa salami – sliced thick
- 1/4 pound provolone cheese – sliced thick
- 1 jar (8 oz.) Il Primo Giardiniera Hot Mix
- 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
Cut off the tops of the tomatoes and carve out the center leaving only the rind. Chop the tomato centers and put into a large mixing bowl. Add giardiniera (including oil), and vinegar. Salt and pepper to taste. Slice salami and cheese into 1/2 inch strips and add to mixture. Mix by hand thoroughly. Stuff tomatoes with mixture and refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.
