  • 1 tsp herbes de Provence
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp chopped capers

Instructions

  • COMBINE tuna with zest, herbs, Dijon, mayo, capers and peppers in a medium bowl.
  • CUT crusts from bread, then, using a rolling pin, flatten each slice of bread. Spread each slice with a little butteron 1 side. Divide tuna salad equally among bread slices and smooth evenly with a knife. Lay 2 gherkin slices, end to end, at the short end of each sandwich, and roll into a short log.
