Tuna and artichoke spread
Makes about 30 crackers
10oz canned good quality tuna in oil (we like Italian, of course)
5-6 pieces small artichokes in oil, roughly chopped
3 tbsp mayonnaise
1 ½ tsp freshly grated orange zest
5 tbsp Cardum Extra Virgin Olive Oil
½ cup Castelvetrano olives, pitted and sliced
Salt and pepper
1 box of your favorite gourmet cracker or crostini
1. Drain the oil from the tuna.
2. Place the tuna, artichokes, mayonnaise, orange zest and Cardum extra virgin olive oil in a food processor and process on medium speed until a smooth consistency is formed. In the absence of a food processor, mix the ingredients well in a bowl using a fork to break up the tuna. Add salt and pepper to taste.
3. Spread 1 ½ tsp – 1 tbsp (depending on the size of the cracker) and arrange the crackers on a serving dish.
4. Top each cracker with a slice of Castelvetrano olive and serve.
