Bistro Tuna Sandwich

On the weekends, I try to make tasty sandwiches for lunch.  One day the gourmand stars aligned just right and the idea for this fresh-tasting lemony tuna sandwich popped into my head.  The very next weekend I tried it out - it was every bit as yummy as I hoped it would be.  To me, it tastes of summer at a sea-side bistro...

Bistro Tuna Sandwich

Sandwich Ingredients:
2 packages Starkist lemon pepper tuna (regular tuna packed in water works fine in a pinch)
1 1/2 cups chopped lettuce (I use a combination of iceberg, romaine and red leaf)
1/4 medium red onion - sliced thin
2 medium tomatoes, chopped
4 sausage roll buns
Dressing Ingredients:
2 lemons
1 packet Great Seasons Italian Dressing dry mix
1/4 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
pepper to taste
Directions for Dressing:
  1. Juice the lemons
  2. Add Italian dressing mix, olive oil and mustard
  3. Whisk together until an emulsification occurs (it sticks together in a creamy-ish dressing)
Directions for Sandwich Assembly:
  1. Combine the lettuce and tuna in a large bowl
  2. Add the lemon dressing to the bowl and toss well to coat
  3. Split the buns
  4. Heap lettuce-tuna mixture onto the bottom bun halves and top with the chopped tomatoes & sliced onions
