1/1 Photo of Mediterranean-Style Tuna and Olive Sandwich
A sandwich that is served at the small cafes in the Mediterranean --- although they serve it mixed with olive oil I have listed mayonnaise I think you will enjoy it better that way, also many cafes use fresh cooked tuna, I have listed canned you may of coarse use the fresh ---the bread slices may be lightly toasted in a skillet if desired.
