Pesto Tuna Caprese Cucumber Bites

Not certain for those who guys are satisfied about zucchini week being over or utterly devastated. I’m in a position for a little one thing different in the recipe rotation because wager what I realized? Tony hates zucchini. He told me this after he picked the roasted zucchini out of the enchilada casserole I made. Funny sufficient, he did totally demolished a number of slices of my chocolate zucchini cake with zero proceedings.

Heh. Men.

Let’s transfer on to my new favorite appetizer. One with just a few elements, quick prep time, easy bite-ability, and of course, BOLD FLAVA.

Meet the cute Pesto Caprese Tuna Cucumber Bites in partnership with my buddies at Genova Tuna.

I wanted to make something that is easily to collect, adorable enough to provoke your guests and leaves you short of more because they’re so freakin’ delish.

So how do you are making them?

First, Genova tuna is blended with store-bought pesto (or you'll be able to easily make your own) then piled top on thick cucumber slices, topped with a ripe cherry tomato part, just a little mozzarella, a basil leaf and a drizzle of a very simple selfmade candy balsamic relief. BOOM.

If you haven’t already spotted, I’ve beloved the usage of Genova’s albacore and yellowfin tunas for speedy foods and little snacks like this. One can packs 26g of protein and is packaged in just a little olive oil and salt. It’s actually my favorite tuna out there as it has SUCH good flavor.

Genova also means that you can in truth hint your tuna to see where it got here from by entering a code on their website here. Pretty cool, huh?

P.S. If you haven’t made my farmer’s market tuna wraps, you NEED to. They are outrageously good.

Make these for your subsequent summer time BBQ, provoke all your buddies, and send me a photo of your masterpiece on Instagram by way of tagging #ambitiouskitchen.

Enjoy xo!
