    1. 1
      .Bring a pot of salted water to a boil and add the green beans. When the water comes back to a boil, take the green beans out and add to a bowl of ice water. Once they are cooled, drain them, pat dry and chop.

      Combine the mayo, olives and lemon juice in a food processor and process until just about smooth. Transfer this mixture to a bowl.
    3. 3
      Drain the tuna and stir it into the mayo mixture. Add the eggs, tomatoes, green beans, dill, and the salt and pepper (to taste) and mix together.
    4. 4
      Toast the bread slices. Divide the tuna onto 4 slices of the bread, top with lettuce and remaining bread slices.

      A lovely satisfying lunch when you feel to inclination to whip up something a little different. I halved the recipe as there was just myself & DH and there was still some left over. I sub'd fresh dill for dried dill but otherwise followed the recipe. Made for Aussie / Kiwi Swap Feb 2014.

      Yum! It was a nice change from salad without being tons of work so it was a hit here on a hot day. The flavors of nicoise did come thru & the ingredients paired well with the pita. I'll be making this again! Thank you for sharing the recipe!

      I love this recipe. so refreshing to make as well, when it gets to hot outside to cook, like it did today. I used cherry tomatoes for this sandwhich, and I love the addition of haricot vertes to the recipe.
