Tuna Napoleons
 
  • Terry just kind of whipped up a batch of these one evening and we've been hooked ever since.
  • These napoleons are many layers of wonderful flavors that come together in a big taste blast and they look so cool on the plate. A perfect summer dish!
  • There are quite a few steps to this recipe but many can be done ahead of time and it all comes together in the end.
