Pronounced ban banya. & translates bathed bread. It is the famous sandwich from the south of France. A Niçoise salad put in a rustic round bread & left hrs so flavors develop & mingle. Just magic➡️

The story of this sandwich is that a person wanted to go fishing decided to transport his Niçoise salad and he did that in a sandwich. By lunch time this was transformed into a delicious meal😀

You can choose a traditional round rustic bread.. Otherwise a French baguette is as good if not better for cutting and easier for eating

I have photographed a can of tuna in brine but it is much better to use tuna in olive oil.  If you don't like anchovies, just leave them out & if you don't have olive paste 'tapenade' just use olives
