These stuffed tomatoes come together quickly, and they take advantage of fresh dill, vinegar, olives and feta cheese for authentic Greek taste and zing. Since they incorporate succulent lumped crab and cooked orzo, each tomato is almost substantial enough to enjoy as a stand-alone meal. Add a mixed greens salad to your plate and you have got a refreshing meal perfectly suited for either lunch or dinner. If you can’t find fresh crab, coarsely chopped cooked shrimp would be equally delicious. When heirloom tomatoes are available during the summer months, feel free to use them here. Look for the tomatoes in your local farmers’ market.
