Tuna is a great source of protein and easy meals. One can of tuna provide 14 or more grams of protein and is easily incorporated into many dishes. This is one of my favorite dishes for tuna as an appetizer. The filling is so good actually, my daughter asks for extra to take to school for lunch! These are my version of Greek Tuna Cups.

First, let’s talk tuna. There is a huge difference between tuna brands and for this and my other tuna reciepes, I recommend Wild Planet and here is why: Wild Planet Tuna is a sustainable brand that uses only two techniques to catch their tuna: pole and line as well as troll fishing. Wild Planet is changing the culture of tuna fishing. Not to mention how fresh and natural the product is.

I hope you enjoy this quick and easy twist. You can always add some beets or Greek olives to make them more of a Greek appetizer but this is perfect they way it is. I also like to substitute out a garlic vinaigrette for the Greek version for a more bold flavor. It will become a new favorite for sure!
