I grew up in Provincetown MA and used to order the tuna fish sammie from a little cafe next to the New Art Cinema (where I worked as a teen). This recipe was inspired by that simple little sandwich with my own little twist.

This recipe was great! I was a little afraid of the Italian dressing, but it really made the sandwich. Will definitely make again.
