      I made this sandwich as written including the smashing, wrapping and marinating time. I liked the combination of ingredients and thought the flavor was quite good. However, in my opinion the sandwich was not wet as described, but actually quite dry, and I ended up having to add extra oil and vinegar to the bread and tuna to make it more palatable, which became sort of messy. Would have preferred doing that at the outset. I looked up some other recipes for this (I hadn't heard of it before) and it seemed a bit of a "lightened up" version. Most of them, for this type of bread, had a litte more dressing, the bread was actually hollowed out (less bread would mean a moister sandwich), there was less tuna (and usually oil packed, although with adjustments the water packed would work better), and it was usually marinated with weights, which would have spread the moisture, and flavor, of the ingredients better throughout the sandwich. The basic idea would definitely be worth making again (and trying), but I would make some of the adjustments I discussed for my own tastes.
