Preparation

  • Drain the tuna well, transfer to a medium bowl, and break apart with a fork. Stir in the mayonnaise, hot sauce, gherkins, dill, and 1/4 tsp. pepper.
  • Evenly divide the tuna salad among the slices of bread (it will be a thin layer). Squeeze a quarter of the lemon over each sandwich, then evenly distribute the bell pepper, onion, and cucumber over the tuna. Sprinkle with a little flaky sea salt, and serve.

    Instead of pumpernickel bread I used toasted naan (sliced in bite size pieces), eliminated the gherkins and added finely diced radishes in the tuna.
