Chicken Salad Stuffed Tomatoes
Summer. Who’s feeling like FINALLY it’s right around the corner? I’m pumped for all things summer. Totally pumped. Part of that is the food, or if we are being real, a LOT of it is about the food! Delicious, creamy potato salads at cook outs, grilled kebabs sizzling on your grill, ice cream chilling in the freezer waiting for you to devour. You name it. I’ll eat it! Especially when it comes to these delicious Bacon Ranch Chicken Salad Stuffed Tomatoes! Plump juicy tomatoes stuffed with a creamy chicken salad full of bacon and ranch seasoning! So flavorful and delicious.
Miss K is BEGGING for a bon fire. As in that’s about all she’ll talk about lately. We keep pushing it off and promising her. Of course the neighbors had one the other night and she caught a glimpse of it and it resulted in more begging and tears.
I kind of feel the same way, but the only reason is it’s about high time I have a s’more! How can you not love a crispy, ooey, gooey marshmallow topped with chocolate and smushed between graham crackers? Gimme them all. All.
There’s some foods that are prime for summer and I get so excited about them nearing. Fresh goodies out of the garden are one of the things that I love. It’s such a shame I live in Minnesota and can only enjoy fresh produce and fruit out of our garden for a very limited amount time. I savor every bite of them!
One of my favorites are plump, juicy tomatoes. When I was growing up my Uncle Reuben had this MASSIVE garden. I mean MASSIVE people. As in it could feed my Dad’s entire family. That’s like fifty people. It’s ridiculous. It’s his pride and joy. He’s 90 years old and still gardening with passion!
I remember getting pails of tomatoes from his garden of fresh tomatoes and digging into them. Give me a sliced tomato with a little salt and I’m a goner. Swoon.
Too bad those dreamy tomatoes only last a few weeks in Minnesota. Tear.

I’ll be honest about this. I may have just may have turned up my nose at Chicken Salad before I made this recipe. I know. Craziness. For some reason I associated it with something my grandma would have ate. I have no idea why. I don’t even know if she ever ate it!
