Lemony Tuna and Artichoke Cooler-Pressed Picnic Sandwiches with Fresh Basil (recipe here)
These Lemony Tuna and Artichoke Cooler-Pressed Sandwiches are perfect for summer—and they aren't just for picnics. Tuna packed in olive oil is combined with marinated artichoke hearts, lemon, and fresh basil on crusty baguettes (homemade perhaps?) for a scrumptious tuna sandwich made without mayonnaise.
They travel well, taste delicious, and can be made several hours ahead. I even like them the next day, when the lemon flavor is more pronounced. They're perfect for toting on picnics or hikes, to work, or just out to the backyard.
They're also the perfect way to celebrate the first homegrown basil of the season, especially if it's just a little harvest. Enjoy!
Love fresh basil?
It tastes great in herbed yogurt cheese.Or try this Big Bite of Basil Herb Dip or Salad Dressing.
