2 large eggs

1 cup green beans, trimmed

Kosher salt

2 5-ounce cans tuna packed in olive oil (preferably Italian)

1 bunch scallions, thinly sliced

1 small green bell pepper, diced

1/2 cup fresh parsley

1/4 cup chopped pitted green olives

Juice of 1 lemon

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling

Freshly ground pepper

4 everything bagels, split

1 large tomato, cut into 4 slices


  1. Put the eggs in a saucepan and cover with cold water by 2 inches. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat and cook 8 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon to a bowl of ice water to cool, then peel and slice.
  2. Meanwhile, put the green beans in a microwave-safe bowl with 1/2 cup water and a pinch of salt. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and microwave until tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water. Cut the green beans in half.
  3. Drain the tuna and toss with the green beans, scallions, bell pepper, parsley, olives, lemon juice, 3 tablespoons olive oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste.
  4. Lightly toast the bagels. Layer the tomato slices, tuna salad and hard-boiled eggs on the bagel bottoms. Drizzle with olive oil and close with the bagel tops.
