  • Cut each sandwich stack in half. Secure through the sandwich half with a long toothpick or 4-inch skewer.

*Tip:

If you can't find marinated tuna, use your favorite tuna; drain the tuna and squeeze a lemon wedge over it.Instead of bread slices, you can also use plain or whole wheat pita rounds. Arrange the lettuce, green beans, tuna, tomato, red onion, and hard-cooked eggs on top of each pita, then drizzle with vinaigrette and serve.
