Mediterranean Inspired Tuna Hoagies

It's hot today. And going to be hot again tomorrow, so there's no major cooking happening here. But good eating is on the menu. This is basically a pantry/fridge clean out, but boy oh boy was I happy to bite into this protein filled sammie. So easy, and you can put it together in no time. Ready to basically not cook?

Tuna Sammies with a Mediterranean Twist
Serves 2

2 Hoagie rolls toasted on both sides on indoor grill
1 can tuna in water or oil drained
2 scallions chopped
1/4 tsp celery salt
2 hard boiled eggs sliced
2 T mayonnaise
1/4 c Kalamata olives sliced
1/3 cup canned artichoke hearts chopped
1 cup baby spinach
freshly ground pepper

Toast your bread either in the oven or stove top grill. Slather a bit of mayo on the bread so the spinach leaves have a place to rest.

To make the tuna salad, combine the rest of the mayo, celery salt and scallions with the tuna that you've broken up into small pieces. When it's smooth to your liking, add equal amounts to both rolls. Now add the olives, chopped artichoke hearts, and sliced egg. Sprinkle with some black pepper and close up this little gem and dig in. Very satisfying for a sultry night. And if your pantry has more ingredients than mine, please feel free to add some roasted red peppers. And maybe even some fresh tomatoes, feta cheese and cilantro.

This was so good, I packed the second sandwich for lunch tomorrow. I'm on a roll!
