  • Slice rolls in half lengthwise. Scoop out about 3/4 of the bread from the top and bottom halves to create pockets; save scooped-out bread for another use, such as bread crumbs, if you like.

  • In a medium bowl, toss together tuna, olive oil, capers, olives, and dill. Gently stir in lemon-fennel mixture. Fill sourdough roll bottoms with salad, dividing evenly, and set tops on salad.
