Saw this on Good Eats and noticed that DH was practically drooling on the TV screen. Thought I'd save it for a rainy day...looks like it would be nice refreshing dinner idea to whip up ahead of time and enjoy that fact that it's fairly healthy too! Have yet to try.

I'm glad someone put this on the site. We've been making this for years and we love it. I do try to find whole wheat baguettes, if I can. And I pretty much always use red or orange peppers in place of green. I've even done this without the tuna, substituting cheese for non-meat eating friends.
- 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 1⁄2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 baguette, approximately 16 to 18 inches long
- 12 ounces tuna in vegetable oil or 12 ounces tuna in water, drained and crumbled
- 1 small green pepper, sliced into rings
- 1 small red onion, sliced into rings
- 2 hard-boiled eggs, sliced
- 1 cup kalamata olive, chopped
- 1 tomatoes, thinly sliced
Directions See How It's Made
- In a small mixing bowl, whisk together vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper. While continuing to whisk, gradually add olive oil. Set aside.
- Slice the bread horizontally into 2 pieces. Tear out some of the bread from the bottom piece, making a slight well.
- Place the tuna, then green pepper, red onion, egg, olives and tomato on the bottom side of the bread in that order.
- Drizzle the vinaigrette over the vegetables and top with second piece of bread.
- Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and let stand at room temperature for 2 hours before serving.
- Cut into 4 sandwiches and serve.
