Instructions
  1. Preheat the broiler. Slice the focaccia horizontally through the middle into two and place, cut-side down, on the grill tray. Grill for 1-2 minutes until browned, then turn the bread over and set aside on the grill tray. Reduce the heat to medium.
  2. Lightly mix the fennel, pepper, scallions, corn and tuna into the mayonnaise. Season to taste with freshly ground black pepper. Divide this mixture among the focaccia halves, spread out and press down gently with a fork to cover the bread completely. Sprinkle with the cheese.
  3. Place under the broiler, well away from the heat, and grill for 3-4 minutes until the cheese is melted and bubbling and just beginning to turn golden.
  4. Meanwhile, divide the salad leaves among four plates. Cut each piece of toasted focaccia into four and place two pieces on each plate. Arrange the tomatoes and cucumber around the edge and serve at once.
