1/8 Photos of Mediterranean Tuna Sandwiches
This is adapted from Cooking Light magazine. It doesn't say to toast the bread but I did. I just found out someone else had this posted already so I'm changing it to my version. I can imagine eating this wrapped in lettuce leaves or as a tortilla wrap too. It is good with and without the mayo. YUM!
