    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    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.

      A pleasant and easy sandwich filling. With the contrasting colors, this one might be nice to serve in a bowl and let guests build their own sandwich. I had intended to use olive oil in place of mayonaise, but found that the tuna had enough oil even after draining. We liked it better without the tomato and lettuce, which detracted from the mediterranean flavor combination.
