Mediterranean-style Tuna Sandwich

I have returned from the land of Northern Lights but am having a difficult time getting back into the swing of cooking.  So, I will share a simple sandwich recipe with you that I greatly enjoy; and, it continues the fish theme I have had to my eating for the past week or so.  I…

Grapes, pomegranates and…
