Dinner Tonight: Pan Bagnat (French Tuna Salad Sandwich, via Food52)
Editor's Note: We're teaming up with our friends over at Food52 to bring you even more easy weeknight recipes. Food52 recipes will appear on this site every Tuesday and Thursday, and are carefully curated by the Serious Eats team. Check back on Serious Eats every weekday afternoon for a new quick and easy weeknight dinner idea from our own test kitchens, or from the good folks at Food52.
This sandwich is hearty enough to be a dinner for one or for two, depending on the size of the loaf. Think of this as a niçoise salad masquerading as a sandwich. Red peppers, artichoke hearts, olives, and French green beans turn an otherwise standard tuna salad into a complete meal. Best of all, depending on what ingredients you use it involves no cooking (although you could toast the bread before assembling the sandwich).
