Total time 15 mins
Yield Makes 1 3/4 cups
The tuna melt at Bunk Sandwiches, in Portland, scores high marks for flavor—and all the ingredients except the condiments are local. Chef and co-owner Tommy Habetz puts the salad in ciabatta rolls spread with mayo and mustard, adds medium-sharp cheddar and sliced garlic dill pickles, and then grills the works in a panini press.

Ingredients

  • 2 cans (5 oz. each) local sustainable albacore tuna
  • 1/4 cup minced red onion
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh basil leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chile flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

How to Make It
