Basil Tuna Boats

I had basil tuna boats for the first time at a potluck party a few months ago, and I thought they were a great idea. They are very tasty, easy to eat (perfect for a cocktail party) and pretty. Plus, they are really a “non recipe” as you can fill them with the tuna salad of your liking.

  • Juice of 1/2 - 1 lemon - depending on size and how much you like lemon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 - 2 tablespoons capers - optional 
  1. Mix the tuna with the Greek yogurt, mayonnaise, mustard, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and capers. 
  2. Fill the basil leaves with the tuna mixture and arrange them on a plate. 
  3. Enjoy!

I love how easy these tuna boats are and that I usually have all the ingredients on hand. In fact, I may make some for Labor Day!

Questions: What’s your favorite easy appetizer? What’s on your Labor Day and/or weekend menu? 

Be well,
