Niçoise-Style Tuna Sandwiches
Pan bagnat is a sandwich from Nice in southern France. Made with tuna (or anchovies), olives, hard-cooked eggs, tomatoes and Mediterranean vegetables, it sometimes is described as salade Niçoise between pieces of bread. The classic method for making pan bagnat is to wrap the assembled sandwiches and weight them with a heavy object for a few hours, or even overnight, so the ingredients and flavors meld and the bread soaks up any juices. We press ours for just 15 minutes, but if you’re in a rush, you can serve them right away. Thinly sliced fresh fennel and/or baby arugula also are nice tucked into the sandwiches before pressing.
5-ounce cans olive oil-packed tuna, drained, 2 tablespoons oil reserved
cup drained capers
01In a medium bowl, stir together the tuna and the reserved oil, the capers, olives, tarragon, shallot, lemon juice, olive oil and ½ teaspoon pepper. Taste and season with salt.
