In a blender or bullet (I used a bullet) add parsley, oil, tuna (well drained) and mayonnaise, blend for approximately 7 or 8 seconds, until mixture is nice and creamy. Set aside.
With a sharp nice cut off the top of the tomato (just the top part, like a hat) and remove the inside pulp and seeds. Turn tomatoes upside down on a rack to drain for approximately 10 minutes, Return to upright position and sprinkle with a little salt and oregano.
Place a basil leaf on every toothpick then poke the toothpick through the middle of the tomato top, continue with every toothpick.
