Stuffed Tomatoes

A great recipe for a summer lunch or dinner or snack! I make these all summer and play with the filling but the favorite is this recipe. They are served cold usually, but my mom loves to heat hers a little in the microwave.

You will need:
~8 large Roma tomatoes, sliced in half length wise and cored
~1 can black olives, chopped finely
~1 can sweet corn, chopped coarsely
~9 pepperoncinis, chopped finely
~5 leaves fresh basil, chopped finely
~s/p to taste
~1 white onion, thinly sliced into long curves
~*opt* grated Parmesan cheese

Core the tomatoes and set aside. Chop all ingredients and mix in a bowel, add salt and pepper and taste to adjust. Spoon a healthy amount into each tomato half. Garnish with onion slice and the optional Parmesan. Serve immediately or chill and serve. Apparently they are good warm as well, but barely heated.
