This popular tuna salad sandwich is sold from beachside stands on the French Riviera. The delicious seafood and freshly made salad dressing are typical of the French kitchen – just a few simple ingredients can make an exceptional meal.
Prep Time: 2 hours, 10 minutes
Total Time: 2 hours, 10 minutes
- 2 cloves garlic, pressed
- 1/3 cup olive oil
- 1 baguette
- 12oz oil-packed white albacore tuna, drained
- 1/3 cup red onion, sliced paper-thin
- 2 tablespoons capers
- 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
- Tomato slices
In a small bowl, mix the garlic and olive oil. Split the baguette lengthwise and brush the cut surfaces with a thin layer of the garlic oil. In a medium bowl, mix the tuna, red onion, capers, red wine vinegar, and just enough garlic oil to make the mixture a tuna salad consistency. Line the baguette with the tomato slices and tuna salad. Wrap the sandwich tightly and chill for several hours before serving.
