Ingredients

  • 2 – 5oz cans Bumble Bee® Solid White Albacore Tuna, drained
  • 1 bunch broccolini, thick stems removed
  • ⅓ cup thinly sliced red onion
  • ⅓ cup finely diced green onions, white & light green parts only
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 1 avocado, diced fairly small
  • Olive oil
  • Kosher salt & freshly ground pepper
  • 1 baguette, sliced horizontally
  • 4 vine ripened tomatoes, cut into ⅛ inch slices
  • 4 slices Muenster cheese slices, halved

Directions

Preheat oven to broil.

Put broccolini in a microwave safe bowl, add 3 tablespoons of water, cover with cling film and microwave 3 minutes. Drain and put broccolini into ice water to stop cooking, let sit 2 minutes.

Drain the broccolini well, rough chop, and put in a large bowl. Add tuna, red & green onion, red pepper flakes, lemon juice and avocado to the broccolini.

Add 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil, season well with Kosher salt & fresh ground pepper, and mix well. Careful not to over mix.

Drizzle baguette halves with olive oil and put in oven, about 8 inches away from heat source until just barely browned & remove.

Top baguettes with tomatoes, tuna mix, and cheese. Place back in oven until the cheese just begins to melt. Serve while warm.
