Ingredients

  • 4 tomatoes
  • 4 slices prosciutto
  • 4 slices Black Forest ham
  • 4 slices provolone cheese
  • 1 cup cooked corn kernels
  • 1/2 cup chopped sweet green pepper
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 1/4 cup low fat croutons
Creamy Dressing:
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk
  • 3 tablespoons light mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon cider vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 1 pinch granulated sugar

Method

Creamy Dressing: Whisk together buttermilk, mayonnaise, cider vinegar, Dijon mustard, salt, pepper and sugar; set aside.

Cut 1/2-inch (1 cm) slice from stem end of each tomato. Chop slices; set aside. With spoon, hollow out tomatoes; place upside down on paper towel-lined plate to drain.

Meanwhile, slice prosciutto and cheese into matchstick-size pieces. In bowl, combine prosciutto, cheese, chopped tomato, corn, green pepper, oregano, salt and pepper. Drizzle with 1/3 cup (75 mL) of the dressing and toss. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate filling and tomato cups separately for up to 8 hours.)

Mound mixture into tomato cups. Drizzle tops with remaining dressing; sprinkle with croutons.
