Stuffed Tomatoes with Tuna-Ready to scoop and stuff!

Summer is coming! The weather is getting higher these days (despite last night's rain). Summer is the best season to have fun with friends, spend some time in the beach or evenb throw a house-party!

When you are thinking about summer, what food comes to mind immediately? Ice-cream. Shaved ice. Sweets. Chocolate. Aha, it's hard to resist those rich and good-looking gelato right? But at the same time, your superego reminds you of the itsy-bitsy bikinis and, those hot and sexy tops and bottoms you bought. *Scream* Be calm! Here's a recipe for a fast, healthy and delicious snack, which you can make for house-parties/picnics.
