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

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Stir in the minced sun dried tomatoes and olives until well dispersed. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • 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!)
  • Sprinkle with minced pine nuts and basil and DEVOUR.

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.
