10 Minutes Total Time

2 Servings


  • 1 Large Avocado
  • 5 oz. 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)


  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.
