JULY: Deluxe Tuna Sandwich

I just got back from my pilates class and was starving so I made myself a great sandwich for breakfast. Of course, I just happened to have everything ready and in my fridge.

Ingredients:

Sliced bread, toasted
Grilled Ahi tuna
Caramelized onions
Avocado
Mayonnaise

Prepare the tuna:  I put mayonnaise, salt and pepper on  the tuna and grill to medium rare. You could use whatever sauce you like.  I also have a bottled ginger soy marinade that I like.

Prepare the carmelized onions:  Cut the onion in half and slice thinly. Heat olive oil in a pan, lower the heat, and cook onions slowly being careful not to burn them.  When they start to get soft throw in a teaspoon or two of brown sugar and one or two tablespoons of balsamic vinegar. Quantities depend upon how much onion you use.

Prepare your sandwich:
Toast the bread, slather both sides with mayonnaise.
Slice 1/4 of an avocado and spread on one sid and top with caramelized onions.
Flake the tuna so that it is flat.
Close, cut  and enjoy.
