Reinvent a traditional nicoise salad by tucking it into a sandwich. Here, we've piled tuna, eggs, olives, and onions between slices of crusty ciabatta.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Put onions, 1/4 cup oil, vinegar, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl; season with pepper. Toss to combine. Let stand 10 minutes.

  • Add tuna and its oil to onion mixture. Add lemon juice and 1/4 teaspoon salt; season with pepper. Gently toss to combine.

  • Cover bottom halves of rolls with lettuce. Top with olives, eggs, and tuna mixture, dividing evenly. Drizzle each with 1 teaspoon olive oil. Cover with top halves of rolls. Serve with lemon wedges.

Cook's Notes

Because tuna is the star ingredient in this sandwich, it's worthbuying oil-packed tuna in a jar, which has a higher qualityand finer flavor than the canned variety.

Made it as is with all of the olive oil, eggs, homemade bread, and olives. I thought it would bee too plain, but it was great!

Did you know tuna is about to become an endangered species? Would you enjoy a panda bear sandwich?

Hi francine d; you are right--too much olive oil for me. but then all we have to do is cut back on it. Plus I always drain my tuna and toss the oil. I never drizzle olive oil on top of rolls unless I'm going to heat them. Let's give them a try though!

There is too much olive oil in the tuna preparation and then adding more in the third step to me is just too too much
