  • Ad
  • 1/4 tsp. granulated sugar

Heat oil in a medium-size frying pan. Add onion. Sprinkle with sugar, salt and pepper. Stir often over medium heat until onion turns golden, 5 minutes. Add 1 tablespoon vinegar and tarragon. Stir constantly until liquid has evaporated, 1 minute. Taste, then add more vinegar, if needed. Remove from heat. In a large bowl, stir mayonnaise with olives and tomatoes. Stir in onion mixture. Crumble in tuna. Stir in spinach.


If making ahead, cover and refrigerate tuna mixture up to 2 days otherwise spoon over base of each bun. Top with bun lids. Serve or wrap and refrigerate. Sandwiches keep well, wrapped and refrigerated, up to one day.
