By using this mayo-mustard topping to heighten the flavor of tomatoes, you can enjoy them all year round. The small amount of horseradish adds just enough sharpness to contrast with the sweet-tart flavor of the tomatoes and the anise-like taste of tarragon.

Choices/Exchanges: 2 Nonstarchy vegetable



  • light mayonnaise
    2 tbsp
  • Dijon Mustard
    1 1/2 tsp
  • horseradish
    1 tsp
  • dried tarragon
    1/2 tsp
  • tomatoes
  • whole-wheat bread crumbs
    1/3 cup
  • olive oil cooking spray


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, mustard, horseradish, and tarragon.

  3. Cut a 1/4-inch slice from the stem end of each tomato and a very thin slice from the other end so that it has a flat bottom to prevent rolling. Place the tomatoes with the stem-end up in a pie pan. Spread the mayonnaise mixture over each tomato. Top with the bread crumbs. Lightly spray the crumbs with cooking spray.

  4. Bake for 30 minutes, or until the tomatoes are just tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
