Tuna Salad Sandwich

My friend Arbor made these.  Everyone loved them!  The giardiniera peppers were really spicy!  They added a nice zip to the sandwich.

This meal was also very informative, because I am not a big tuna salad sandwich person, and I learned that provolone cheese was a must!!  As was tomatoes and onions.  I don’t think tomatoes and onions are a must in anything.  But you can never go wrong with cheese!
