Instructions:for our Apple-Tuna Treasure Chest Recipe
Slice off top third section of each apple (stem tip); set aside. Using a small teaspoon or grapefruit spoon, carefully core-out center of each apple base (working outward from centermost part of fruit), leaving a generous 1/4-inch outer edge on each “cup;” set aside.
In a small bowl, mix tuna, vegenaise (or mayonnaise), mustard, and carrot. Season to taste. Spoon a generous 1/4 cup of tuna salad into each apple, top with top third of apples (cut earlier), tilted slightly to resemble a chest being opened. Serve immediately.
