Ingredients

  • 1/4

    white onion thinly sliced

  • 1/8

    small red onion thinly sliced

  • 2

    tablespoons mild French extra-virgin olive oil plus

  • Additional extra-virgin olive oil for drizzling

  • 1

    tablespoon red-wine vinegar plus additional

  • 1/4

    teaspoon salt plus additional

  • Freshly-ground black pepper to taste

  • 2

    cans good-quality tuna in olive oil - (6 oz ea) including olive oil

  • Lemon juice to taste

  • 2

    Kaiser rolls plain

  • Lettuce leaves as needed (combination of Boston, green-leaf, or other green leafy lettuce)

  • 8

    plum tomato slices

  • 2

    hard boiled eggs sliced

  • 4

    anchovy fillets drained

  • Nicoise olives to taste

  • Sliced radishes to taste

Directions

Combine the red and white onion with 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, 1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and several grinds of black pepper in a bowl. Using your hands, mix and squeeze everything together for 5 minutes. (Don't rush through this part; the onions need time to release their juices and mellow.) Work in canned tuna in olive oil, including the oil. Season with fresh lemon juice, red-wine vinegar, and salt, then add pepper, to taste. Cut Kaiser rolls in half crosswise and spread each bottom half with lettuce leaves. Use a couple of varieties (whatever looks good) for the difference in texture. On top of each lettuce layer, arrange 4 tomato slices (skip this step if you don't have really tomatoes on hand). Then add about half the tuna mixture and 3 to 4 slices of hard-boiled egg. Crisscross each sandwich with 2 drained anchovy fillets and strew with Nicoise olives (pit them if desired), chopped scallion greens, and sliced radishes. Then drizzle generously with more olive oil and top with the remaining Kaiser halves, pressing gently but firmly. This recipe yields 2 servings.
