These vegan beauties are wonderful and make a great low calorie lunch or even a side for dinner! Feel free to fill smaller tomatoes and use as an appetizer or side dish. Recipe from the California Raisin Marketing Board. NOTE: After making this dish. . .I suggest making up a little extra dressing and pouring atop the salad filled tomato just before serving to perk up the flavors. Also, use the full 3/4 cup of raisins, as they are truly the star of this dish. I also added some yellow bell pepper which was great. Lastly, feel free to use your own favorite vinaigrette in this recipe instead of the dressing (we like to use a Zesty Italian with a little honey stirred into it). Just some thoughts :)
