      We made these for dinner last night and they were delicious! I did add a little bit of light mayo to the tuna. Next time I think I will mix the pesto in with the tuna before spreading it on the bread, too. Overall, outstanding recipe, thank you!

      Yum, I never would have thought of using pesto & tuna together but it definitely works. Thanks Kit for a tasty lunch in which I'm getting a good dose of Omega-3...
