Ingredients

  • 2 6 - ounce cans chunk light tuna, drained
  • 1 plum tomato, chopped
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped marinated artichoke hearts
  • 2 tablespoons minced red onion
  • 1 tablespoon chopped pitted kalamata olives
  • 1 teaspoon capers, rinsed and chopped
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 8 slices whole-wheat bread
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil

Directions

  1. Have four 15-ounce cans and a medium skillet (not nonstick) ready by the stove.
  2. Place tuna in a medium bowl and flake with a fork. Add tomato, feta, artichokes, onion, olives, capers, lemon juice and pepper; stir to combine. Divide the tuna mixture among 4 slices of bread (about 1/2 cup each). Top with the remaining bread.
  3. Heat 1 teaspoon canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Place 2 panini in the pan. Place the medium skillet on top of the panini, then weigh it down with the cans. Cook the panini until golden on one side, about 2 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium-low, flip the panini, replace the top skillet and cans, and cook until the second side is golden, 1 to 3 minutes more. Repeat with another 1 teaspoon oil and the remaining panini.
