Don't Judge a Recipe by it's Photo

Today I created a delicious tuna sandwich inspired by "sugo alla puttanesca". Puttanesca is an Italian sauce that is comprised of numerous items which often includes anchovies, tomatoes, olives, capers and more. The resulting flavor is spicy, salty and scrumptious.Today I decided to translate the character of a slow-simmered puttanesca sauce into a quick and easy sandwich. The resulting meal was quite tasty although it failed to be photogenic (thus no accompanying picture).

Puttanesca Tuna Sandwich
Serves 1
Gluten-Free * Vegetarian

1 pouch premium light tuna in water (2.5 ounces)
2 sundried tomato halves, chopped
1 tsp capers, drained and chopped
2 pitted olives, drained and chopped
2 tsp dijon mustard
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp fat-free greek yogurt
A few sprigs fresh parsley and/or thyme, chopped
Dash of pepper
1 slice light gluten free bread, toasted

1. Combine all ingredients except for bread in a small bowl. Top toasted bread with tuna mixture. (For best flavor, let tuna mixture sit in refrigerator  for a few hours to allow flavors to marry).
