Fresh green beans give this tuna sandwich, inspired by the classic French salad, an interesting crunch. Cooking the beans in the microwave will save you time in the kitchen.
1 cup (1-inch) cut fresh green beans (about 4 ounces)
1 tablespoon water
1/4 cup niçoise olives, pitted and chopped (about 18 olives)
1 tablespoon capers
1 (12-ounce) can solid white tuna in water, drained
1 tablespoon extravirgin olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 (6-inch) whole wheat pita rounds, cut in half
4 curly leaf lettuce leaves
How to Make It
Combine beans and water in a small microwave-safe bowl; cover with plastic wrap. Microwave at high 1 1/2 minutes or until beans are crisp-tender; drain. Rinse with cold water. Drain well; cool. Combine beans, olives, capers, and tuna.
Combine oil, juice, and salt, stirring with a whisk. Pour oil mixture over tuna mixture; toss gently to coat.
Line each pita half with 1 lettuce leaf; spoon about 1/2 cup tuna mixture into each lettuce-lined pita half.
