Traditional tuna salad may include celery, onions and lots of mayonnaise, but why go traditional for dinner when you can go gourmet? This tuna salad is mayonnaise-free, and tastes like something fresh you made from the Italian wine country.
First, take Italian tuna mixed with olive oil, Kalamata olives, basil, celery and red onions. Add a little salt, pepper and lemon juice for zest. For the bean spread, mash cannellini beans with more oil, salt, pepper, lemon juice and then add in some savory Italian spices -- garlic, parsley and basil.
Once you have your two concoctions, alternate spreading the tuna and the bean mixture on slices of bread. Separate the layers with watercress or romaine lettuce. The result is a delicious tuna salad sandwich that will have your children exclaiming "Mamma mia!"
