Low on spunk? Try these robust sandwiches to get going again! To make these vegetarian, just omit the tuna.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To prepare the vinaigrette: In an electric blender or food processor, puree the basil and garlic with the olive oil.
  2. Transfer to a small bowl; stir in the cheese, vinegar, and pepper.
  3. In a large bowl, combine all the filling ingredients, add the vinaigrette, and toss well.
  4. Slice off the top third of each roll.
  5. Scrape out the insides, leaving a 1/2-inch shell.

  7. Add a final layer of the tuna.
  8. Wrap each sandwich in aluminum foil and refrigeratefor at least 3 and up to 24 hours.
  9. Serves 6.
  10. Enjoy!

Incredible! Cheated on the vinagarette as fresh basil was too pricey! This will be a staple in summer! Might be good with salmon substitued for the tuna!
