  • 4 (4-ounce) round rustic rolls
  • 3 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons extravirgin olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

  1. Split rolls in half. Hollow out top and bottom halves of the rolls, leaving a 1/2-inch-thick shell; reserve torn bread for another use. Combine vinegar, oil, and garlic; stir with a whisk. Spoon vinegar mixture evenly over cut sides of rolls.
  2. Combine juice, parsley, black pepper, and tuna. Spoon 1/2 cup tuna mixture on bottom half of each roll. Layer bell pepper slices, tomato slices, spinach leaves, anchovies, and onion over tuna mixture. Cover with tops of rolls.
