1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

3 tablespoons capers -- rinsed and chopped

1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves

Ingredient note: Canned white tuna comes from the large albacore and can be
high in mercury content. Chunk light tuna, on the other hand, which comes
from smaller fish—skipjack or yellowfin—is best for health-conscious
eaters. According to a recent study, canned white tuna samples averaged
about 315 percent more mercury than chunk light tuna samples. (The chunk
light tunas averaged 0.132 parts per million mercury content, while the
white [albacore] tunas averaged 0.412 ppm.)

Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
