Ingredients

  • 1/2

    white onion, thinly sliced

  • 1/2

    red onion, thinly sliced

  • 1/4

    cup plus 4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 2

    tablespoons red wine vinegar

  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

  • 2

    jars (7 ounces each) best-quality tuna packed in olive oil

  • 1

    tablespoon fresh lemon juice, plus lemon wedges, for serving

  • 4

    small ciabatta rolls, split horizontally

  • 2

    heads Bibb lettuce, leaves split horizonatally

  • 1 1/2

    cups nicoise olives, pitted

  • 8

    hard-boiled eggs, peeled and thinly sliced

Directions

Put onions, 1/4 cup oil, vinegar, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl; season with pepper. Toss to combine. Let stand 10 minutes. Add tuna and its oil to onion mixture. Add lemon juice and 1/4 teaspoon salt; season with pepper. Gently toss to combine. Cover bottom halves of rolls with lettuce. Top with olives, eggs, and tuna mixture, dividing evenly. Drizzle each with 1 teaspoon olive oil. Cover with top halves of rolls. Serve with lemon wedges. Note: Because tuna is the star ingredient in this sandwich, it's worth buying oil-packed tuna in a jar, which has a higher quality and finer flavor than the canned variety.
