I could write a whole blog about sandwiches I make with Trader Joe's ingredients, from the Sloppy Jose to the naanwich. Of course, I love leftover sandwiches, so after enjoying TJ's marinated ahi tuna steaks for dinner, I used the extra fish to make a gourmet tuna melt with olives and sprouts. The photos don't do justice to how delicious it was.If you don't have a Trader Joe's near you, don't worry: you can use any leftover ahi tuna steak, roasted, grilled, or seared. Though I spooned on the supermarket's mixed olive bruschetta, a basic tapenade or olive salad will create the same effect. Find out how to melt your leftover tuna into this tasty sandwich when you read more.
