Tuna on Tomatoes

This takes just minutes to whip up, it's yummy and it makes a pretty plate. I know most people have their own recipes for tuna salad - below is mine if you'd like it. And for those who eat dairy, just put a little cheddar or provolone on top and bake for a few minutes before topping with avocados!
