Directions

  1. Arrange eight slices of the bread on a counter. Top four of the slices with lettuce leaves. Arrange the green beans on top of the lettuce; top with tuna. Top four slices with the tomato, red onion, 2 olives, and, if desired, egg slices. Drizzle the eight bread slices with Fresh Parsley Gremolata Vinaigrette.
  2. Place the tomato-topped bread slices on top of the lettuce-topped bread slices to make four stacks. Top each stack with one of the remaining 4 bread slices.
  3. Cut each sandwich stack in half. Secure through the sandwich half with a long toothpick or 4-inch skewer.

From the Test Kitchen

If you can't find marinated tuna, use your favorite tuna, drained, and squeeze a lemon wedge over it.
