Mediterranean Tuna Sandwich

Mediterranean Tuna Sandwich created by skat5762

My boyfriend's mother prepared this for us on holiday... I don't normally like canned-tuna, but the layer of fresh flavors that break through in this sandwich are outstanding! I've never measured the ingredients when I've made this, so these are all approximations. Fresh bread and tomatoes are a must!

    This sandwich was amazing! The vinegar and oil really complemented the sandwich well - I would consider using a citrus vinegar next time to jazz it up a bit. I used fresh baby mizuna for my greens - bomb! I topped it all off with a little bit of fresh ground sea salt and pepper and my usual 45 minute lunch was over in 15!

    My tuna-and-mayo-on-toast-loving boyfriend told me this was the best tuna he ever ate. So simple, but it seems kinda of fancy when you're eating it! Thanks for a new twist on an old classic!

    sounds great. I would add some freshly grated lemon peel and juice in stead of the vinegar though. yum!

    Excellent! I added chopped Italian flat-leaf parsley and it made it better
