    Boy did this ever hit the spot on a hot and humid day. I have always loved capers in tuna so I know that this was going to be a hit right off. Mixing it together works really well because it helps to keep the filling from squishing around in the bread, very nifty and delicious. :D

    This is a wow sandwich. DBF usually doesn't do anything that he thinks may be "diet food" - He was none the wiser on this one and enjoyed it almost as much as I did. I was concerned at first about mixing the lettuce up with the tuna, as it is different than how I usually make my tuna sandwiches. I was very pleasantly surprised because the lettuce added a lot more bulk to the sandwich without adding a lot of extra calories and it tasted delicious!

    I chose this recipe especially for DH as he loves tuna :) and he was not disappointed. This was a new twist for him, oil & vinegar dressing on tuna, but he really enjoyed it. Thanks lazyme! Made for Cookathon for lazyme, April 2009.

    This was so good and filling! I had it for an early supper and now I don't need to snack on anything for the rest of the evening or night. I added a little more oregano than I should have but generally speaking it didn't do any harm to the sandwich.
