(serves 4)

198g (7oz) can of tuna in oil, drained
8 fresh ripe tomatoes
5 tbsp low-fat mayonnaise
3 drops Tabasco sauce
1 tbsp stuffed olives, chopped
2 tsp lemon juice
8 small sprigs fresh parsley
salt and pepper

1. Slice the tops off all tomatoes (keep the tops to one side). Scoop out the seeds from the tomatoes and discard. Season inside the tomatoes with the salt and pepper.

2. In a bowl mix together the mayonnaise, stuffed olives, tuna, lemon juice and Tabasco sauce, mix well.

3. Divide the tuna mixture between each of the tomatoes cases and fill each one well. Place the lids back on the tomatoes, press down gently to hold together.

4. Garnish each tomato with parsley on the top. These are great served with any salad or can be eaten just by themselves. Fast and simple.
