  • 1–2 T tomato sauce
  • 3 T Woolworths tangy mayonnaise

Cooking Instructions

1. Squeeze the juice of half the lemon into a small bowl, add the sliced onion and salt and massage the onions for a few seconds. Set aside to pickle.

2. Drain the tuna and place in a large bowl. Add the tomato sauce, mayonnaise, remaining lemon juice, another pinch of salt and combine. Add a few shakes of Tabasco if you like, as well as the capers and quick-pickled onions.

3. Divide the tuna mixture between 2 halves of the rustica loaf. Top one of the remaining halves with the crunchy salad, and the other half with avocado and gherkins.

4. Serve with Woolworths Farmer’s salted chips.
