Tarragon Tomatoes

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.





Serves: 4

Serving Size: 1 Tomato

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cooking Time: 30 minutes

  • 2 tablespoons light mayonnaise
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard (lowest sodium available)
  • 1 teaspoon bottled white horseradish, drained
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon, crumbled
  • 4 medium tomatoes, 1/4-inch slices cut from the stem ends and very thin slices cut from the bottoms
  • 1/3 cup soft whole-wheat bread crumbs (lowest sodium available)
  • 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. 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.
