Ingredients

2 can(s)
6 oz albacore tuna
1/4 c
finely diced red onion
1/4 c
extra virgin olive oil
1 Tbsp
balsamic vinegar
1 Tbsp
minced basil
1/2 tsp
crushed red pepper
salt and freshly ground pepper
4
ciabatta rolls, split
dijon mustard and mayonnaise, for spreading
8
¼-inch-thick slices of tillamook sharp cheddar or tillamook swiss cheese
24
slices garlic dill pickles
2 Tbsp
tillamook unsalted butter, softened

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a medium bowl, mix the tuna with the onion, olive oil, vinegar, basil, and crushed red pepper. Season with salt and pepper.
2
Heat a panini press or griddle. Spread the cut sides of the rolls with mustard and mayonnaise and top each roll half with a slice of cheese.
3
Spread the tuna salad on the bottoms and cover with the pickles. Close the sandwiches and spread the outsides of the rolls with butter.
4
Place the sandwiches on the press or griddle and cook over moderate heat until the cheese is melted, about 6 minutes. To make sure the sandwiches are fully cooked, open them up and place in a 450°F oven for about 1 minute.
5
Remove from oven, close sandwiches, cut in half, and serve.
