2 cans (100 g) Gold Seal No Drain Solid White Tuna
20 sprigs asparagus, blanched
1 tbsp olive oil
pears, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
2 heirloom tomatoes, thinly sliced 
mango, peeled and thinly julienne
1/2 cup roasted pepper aioli
  • Chef's Tips

    You can buy the roasted pepper aioli in your grocery store, or make your own by adding roasted peppers, mayonnaise, salt & pepper in a food processor and mix until smooth. To ensure its ‘runny’ enough to drizzle over salad you can always add a little lemon juice.


    1. Add the asparagus sprigs to a pot of boiling water and blanch for 30 seconds.  Remove and place in a bowl with cold water to stop the cooking.
    2. In a pan, over medium to high heat add the olive oil and sauté pears for about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
    3. Place 2 to 3 slices of the heirloom tomatoes on a chilled plate, add 5 asparagus sprigs, chunks of tuna and drizzle with the roasted pepper aioli.
    4. Garnish with fresh mango roasted pear and serve.
