 by 2 people
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
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.

Very tasty! Very filling! Needs a bit more of something though, of course I had cut the recipe in half.
