Niçoise Toasts with Fresh Tuna and Tomatoes

[Photograph: Kerry Saretsky]

Yet another one of my reinventions of the Niçoise salad, this is a simple, thick tartine of grilled bread rubbed with strong garlic, spread with a fresh and tangy basil fromage blanc. On top of that a simple, honest salad of fresh, home-roasted tuna, sweet grape tomatoes, black and green olives, capers, olive oil, and lemon. A contrast of sharp flavors and colors, this makes a great lunch or light dinner for when you feel like eating something virtuous and interesting.
