  Total Time: 25 minutes
  Ease of Preparation: Easy

 2 6-ounce cans chunk light tuna, drained
 1 plum tomato, chopped
 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
 2 tablespoons chopped marinated artichoke hearts
 2 tablespoons minced red onion
 1 tablespoon chopped pitted kalamata olives
 1 teaspoon capers, rinsed and chopped
 1 teaspoon lemon juice
 Freshly ground pepper, to taste
 8 slices whole-wheat bread
 2 teaspoons canola oil


 Place tuna in a medium bowl and flake with a fork. Add tomato, feta, artichokes, onion, olives, capers, lemon juice and pepper; stir to combine. Divide the tuna mixture among 4 slices of bread (about 1/2 cup each). Top with the remaining bread.

3. Heat 1 teaspoon canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Place 2 sandwiches in the pan. Press a spatula on top of the sandwiches. Cook until golden on one side, about 2 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium-low, flip the sandwich, again press with a spatula, and cook until the second side is golden, 1 to 3 minutes more. Repeat with another 1 teaspoon oil and the remaining sandwiches.
