    This was really good. I used the recipe as directed, but I added hot peppers and romaine on the sandwich. I guess Alice L doesn't know the components of Caesar dressing lol.

    This sandwich is not 'Caesar" at all. Substituted Caesar salad dressing for the mayonnaise, left out the mustard, added a few pine-nuts for crunch, and used shredded Romaine lettuce thus making it more 'Caesar-like'.

    I was concerned at first about a couple of the ingredients but the taste was wonderful and very light and cool. Would be a great summer lunch or picnic sandwich!

    During the Lent season, it is often difficult to find (good) recipes containing fish; as practicing Catholic abstain from meat on Fridays. This recipe is so simple and yet filling :) Happy Eatings!

    I had all the ingredients and made this today for myself and a couple other friends - it's good! I keep a few cans of "light tuna." Light tuna isn't light in calories, but it's light in mercury content. Go to any search engine and look up tuna, unfortuately it's true that tuna contains mercury, but light tuna has less. Look it up to be assured - there's so many tuna recipes here, wish I could have tuna everyday!

    I haven't actually tried this sandwich yet; however, the list of ingredients made my mouth water in anticipation. I was hooked at "marinated artichoke hearts" - one of my favorite foods. I love that this sandwich is also diabetic friendly!
