Ingredients
  • 14 ounces jarred or canned Italian tuna in olive oil
  • 1/4 cup minced celery
  • 2 tablespoons minced yellow onion
  • 2 tablespoons minced cornichons
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons good mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Sourdough bread, halved and sliced 1/2 inch thick
  • Hummus, store-bought or homemade (recipe follows)
  • Fresh radishes, sliced
  • Hummus:
  • 2 cups canned chickpeas, drained, liquid reserved (15.5-ounce can)
  • 1/3 cup tahini or sesame paste
  • 4 teaspoons minced garlic (4 cloves)
  • 6 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice (3 lemons)
  • 8 dashes hot sauce, such as Tabasco
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
Directions

Drain the oil from the tuna, reserving the oil. Place the tuna in a mixing bowl and flake it with a fork. Add the celery, onion, cornichons, lemon juice, mayonnaise, 2 tablespoons of the reserved oil, the mustard, salt, and pepper and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for a few hours to allow the flavors to develop.

Toast the bread and spread each slice with a layer of hummus. Spread the tuna salad on each piece of bread, garnish with slices of radish, and serve immediately.

For the Hummus:

Place the chickpeas, 2 tablespoons of the reserved liquid, the tahini, garlic, lemon juice, hot sauce, and salt in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade and process until coarsely pureed. The hummus should be moist and thick; add more lemon juice or reserved chickpea liquid to thin, if necessary. Cover and refrigerate for several hours for the flavors to blend. Taste for seasonings. Yield: 2 cups.
