    Lori Mama's Note:

    I saw her make this on her show one day and just had to try it out. I slightly modified it, due to a couple of items not available at our supermarket. Not your average tuna sandwich.

      Perfect! Loved it, simply easy and great flavor. I dd use fresh bag of tuna vs the can, but great. I did slightly brown the ciabatta before adding the filling which I think helped, but that was just personal preference. Nice sandwich. Kim

      Definitely a five star sandwich! I didn't slice the ciabatta horizontally becasue mine was already sliced normally so I just did the sandwiches individually. This is a little more time consuming than an average sammie but so refreshing and definitely worth it. It would be great to make up on a Sunday and use as a gourmet lunch throughout the week. Thank you very much. Made for Holiday Tag.

      Everyone just adored this sandwich, we had been shoveling for the last two days after a huge snowstorm hit the Mid-Atlantic area. I needed something really great to plunk down on the kitchen table that was: 1)filling 2) tasty 3)easy to make, and this is the perfect combination of the 3 criteria mentioned. I made 2 small changes that made no impact at all on the final product. They were as follows: I used frozen artichoke hearts, fresh spinach in place of the arugula, and a small white onion in place of the shallot. Used a cast iron skillet to warm sandwiches, and ate away! Thank you so much, Lori! Made for *Everyday is a Holiday* February 2010
