2 6 ounce cans Albacore tuna


1 tbsp Basil
1/4 cup Red onion


1 tbsp Balsamic vinegar
1 Dijon mustard and mayonnaise
1 thick lengthwise 16 1/8-inch-thick lengthwise slices Kosher dill pickle

Baking & Spices

1/2 tsp Red pepper
1 Salt and freshly ground pepper

Oils & Vinegars

1/4 cup Olive oil, extra-virgin

Bread & Baked Goods

4 Ciabatta rolls



  1. In a medium bowl, mix the tuna with the onion, olive oil, vinegar, basil and crushed red pepper. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat a panini press or griddle. Spread the cut sides of the rolls with mustard and mayonnaise and top each roll half with a slice of cheese. Spread the tuna salad on the bottoms and cover with the pickles. Close the sandwiches and spread the outsides of the rolls with the butter.
  3. Add the sandwiches to the press and cook over moderate heat until the cheese is melted, about 6 minutes. Cut the sandwiches in half and serve.


Pinot Noir is Oregon's famous grape, but Pinot Gris also does well there. It would pair well with these tuna-melts.


2 tbsp Butter, unsalted
1 thick 8 1/4-inch-thick slices Swiss or cheddar cheese
