  • Cut a thin slice from the base of each tomato and discard.
  • Using a small, sharp knife or teaspoon, carefully scoop out the seeds, keeping the tomato shells whole.
  • Strain the scooped out tomato pulp and reserve the juices.
  • Shred or finely chop the mozzarella cheese and mix with the basil, goat cheese and enough reserved tomato juice to form a thick, creamy mixture.
  • Season, then spoon into the tomato shells.
  • Place the tomatoes on a baking sheet and bake in a 350 degree pre-heated oven until the cheese mixture looks melted and golden and the tomatoes are lightly cooked, but not too soft. About 20 minutes.
  • Serve on a bed of  the salad greens and dress with the vinaigrette.
