Make It

1. Warm broiler on low with a rack 6 inches from heat. In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil and vinegar. Toss diced tomatoes and spinach with oil-and-vinegar dressing. Set aside.

2. Arrange baguette halves, cut-side up, on a baking sheet, and spread each with 1 Tbs. mayonnaise. Set aside.

3. In a medium bowl, stir together tuna, mustard, shallot, dill, red bell pepper, celery, pepper, and remaining 1/3 cup mayonnaise. Taste and season with salt if desired.

4. Spread half the tuna mixture on each baguette half; top with cheese. Broil until cheese is melted, about 3 minutes. Scatter the salad over the baguette. Slice and serve immediately, with sweet potato fries.
