Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 2 Servings

Ingredients

  • 1 Large Avocado
  • 1 Can Genova Yellowfin or Albacore Tuna drained
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Pesto
  • 2 Tbsp Sun-dried tomatoes minced, not packed in oil
  • 2 Tbsp Manzanilla Olives minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tsp Pine nuts minced (for garnish) *
  • Fresh sliced basil for garnish

Instructions

  1. Cut the avocado in half evenly and remove the seed. Scrape the hole where the seed was so that it's quite large and deep. You should scrape out about 3 Tbsp of the avocado flesh total.
  2. Add those 3 Tbsp of scraped-out avocado into a medium bowl. Then, add in the drained Genova Tuna and the pesto. Mash together until well mixed.
  3. Stir in the minced sun dried tomatoes and olives until well dispersed. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. Divide the mixture between the avocado halves, really stuffing it in and piling it up on top of the avocado (it'll be pretty high!)
  5. Sprinkle with minced pine nuts and basil and DEVOUR.

Recipe Notes

* I prefer my pine nuts toasted (pop them in a 375 degree oven for 5 to 10 minutes, or stir them around in a pan on medium heat) so you can toast them or leave them un-toasted. Whatever you prefer.
