Snowy Tomato Slices – Помидоры С Майонезом и Сыром

This is more of an idea than a recipe, but I couldn’t resist sharing it with you. With the approaching holidays, simple and delicious appetizers and side dishes are always a good addition. This is one of my favorites. It takes a few minutes to assemble and is both light, refreshing and hearty – if that’s even possible:). 

Slice the tomatoes horizontally into 1/4 – 1/2 inch thick slices. It’s totally up to you how thick you make the tomatoes.

Place the mayonnaise and a minced garlic clove in a ziptop bag. Mash it up in your hands to distribute the garlic in the mayo.

Cut a small hole in one of the corners of the bag and drizzle mayo over the top of each tomato slice. Sprinkle a mixture of the Mozzarella and Parmesan cheese over the mayo.

    I make this too 🙂 my husband likes tomatoes this way very much 🙂 it’s his favorite…
    Olga, sometimes I wonder how a lot of your recepies are very very similar as to what we do at home 🙂

      Fresh garden tomatoes can’t be beat. They are my favorite vegetable for sure. I guess, technically, they are considered fruit, but whatever the case may be, they are DELICIOUS!!

    I made these today and they turned out beautiful. I don’t eat cheese but I still wanted to make them for my family and everyone loved them. Thank you for this interesting recipe.

    You probably heard of a similar recipe made with eggplant slices added. My husband absolutely adores it! I usually mix mayo with garlic and shredded parmesan, but will be adding freshly grated mozzarella next time for sure. I also love your idea of mixing the mayo mixture directly in a ziplock bag and then using it to neatly squeeze in onto the tomato, I usually just mixed it in a bowl and spooned it on. You have inspired me and I am making “wheels” for my husband tonight… he used to call them “Mother-in-law-tongues” but after we got married we decided that they were due a new name 😉

    Thanks!

      I’ve made it before, but my husband isn’t a big fan of eggplant:). It’s very tasty too. I’m glad my mayo in the baggie trick was useful to you.

    how much mayo did u use and is it a whole garlic and how much mozzarella and parm did u use for the snowy tomatoes would love to make this !

    • olgak7

      I would roughly approximate about 1/2 teaspoon of mayo per slice of tomato, but that depends on how big the tomato is, Lisa. You can either mince the garlic if you prefer, or crush it, mix it with the mayo and then discard. Obviously, the minced garlic will have a lot stronger bite of garlic in the tomatoes, whereas the crushed garlic clove will just give the taste of garlic to the mayo without being overpowering. Use about 1 Tablespoon of grated cheese per tomato slice.
