Mediterranean tuna party sandwiches

Roberto Caruso

Chatelaine Triple Tested


  • 3 52-g cans Italian-style olive-oil packed tuna, drained

  • 1 tsp lemon zest

  • 1 tsp herbes de Provence

  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard

  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise

  • 1 tbsp chopped capers

  • 1 tbsp drained and chopped pickled banana peppers

  • 5 slices white sandwich bread, cut horizontally (ask the bakery to do this for you)

  • 1 tbsp butter, at room temperature

  • 5 sweet baby gherkin pickles, sliced in half lengthwise


  • COMBINE tuna with zest, herbs, Dijon, mayo, capers and peppers in a medium bowl.

  • CUT crusts from bread, then, using a rolling pin, flatten each slice of bread. Spread each slice with a little butteron 1 side. Divide tuna salad equally among bread slices and smooth evenly with a knife. Lay 2 gherkin slices, end to end, at the short end of each sandwich, and roll into a short log. Wrap tightly with plastic wrap. Refrigerate at least 1 hour, but best overnight, before slicing and serving.
