Yield
4 servings (serving size: 1 sandwich)

Chopped fennel bulb, fresh basil, and capers lend this speedy, no-cook supper vibrant Italian flair. Toasted bread adds a nice texture, but it's an optional step. Serve the sandwich with baked potato chips.

How to Make It

Combine chopped fennel, red onion, 1/4 cup basil, capers, lemon juice, olive oil, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, tuna, and bell peppers in a bowl, stirring well. Spoon 1/2 cup tuna mixture on each of 4 bread slices. Top each serving with 1 bread slice. Cut each sandwich in half diagonally.

Excellent!! Loved it! I threw everything in a food processor and pulsed it and it made a PERFECT spread.

Very nice. Good for us and very tasty. The fennel was a nice aside from the tuna taste. Would do again even with out the bread and serve on greens of some sort with fruit.

Instead of canned tuna sandwich, used the ingredients as a salsa for grilled fresh tuna. Terrific!

I couldn't justify buying an entire fennel bulb for just 1/4 cup so I substituted celery and didn't have any fresh herbs so I used a tbs of pesto for one of the tbs of olive oil. The result was amazing, a fresh new take on tuna sandwiches. I'll definitely use this as my recipe for tuna from now on.

5 stars even though I thought it was a little bland. Just all these flavors (love fennel, basil, capers, roasted red peppers, red onion) in tuna was so different. Maybe a little mozz. cheese is a good idea, as is the pesto, or maybe a little olive tapenade next time. I served with a veggie/bean soup.

Good, but I added more tuna b/c it seemed like the other ingredients drowned out the amount of tuna that the recipe calls for. Nice change from the old mayo tuna mix. Will def. make again.

I couldn't believe how good this turned out. My wife hates fish so I made her some with chunked chicken and it was just as good
