Tuna with Pesto and Roasted Tomatoes

This is a great starter in place of a salad. I love Tuna and I love olives and am always trying to find new ways of combining the two. This is a great make-ahead appie as all you need to do is assemble.

8 pieces of good quality sashimi grade tuna
4 tablespoons homemade Pesto Vinaigrette (don't bother with any store bought as the flavour will be compromised BIG TIME, see my recipe)
4 teaspoons red pepper tapenade
12 cerignola or your favourite green olive
8 roasted tomatoes

Servings: 4 as an appetizer

On a plate place one tablespoon pesto in the middle and lay down 2 pieces of tuna. Top with one teaspoon red pepper tapenade.
Arrange 2 olives and 4 tomatoes around plate and serve.
