Tuna and Artichoke Panini

    3/4 cup pitted kalamata olives
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    2 garlic cloves
    1 teaspoon lemon zest
    1/4 cup mayonnaise
    2 (6-ounce) cans tuna in olive oil, drained
    1 (12 oz.) jar marinated artichokes, drained and coarsely chopped
    1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
    1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    1 (16-ounce) ciabatta bread, halved horizontally
    1 tomato, diced

  Puree the olives, oil, garlic, and zest in a food processor until
 smooth and spreadable. Blend in the mayonnaise. Toss the tuna,
 artichokes, lemon juice, and pepper in a medium bowl, keeping the
 tuna in small chunks.

  Hollow out the bottom and top halves of the bread. Spread the olive
 puree over both cut sides of the bread. Spoon the tuna and artichoke
 mixture onto the bottom half of the bread. Sprinkle the tomatoes
 over. Cover with the bread top. Cut the sandwich crosswise into
 6 pieces and serve.
