Tarragon and champagne vinegar liven up this ravigote, while egg salad gets a major flavor boost, too. If you don't have champagne or white wine vinegar on hand, substitute lemon juice for a bright finish.  You can also add a few pinches of cayenne pepper.

Directions
  1. Peel and coarsely chop four hard-cooked eggs and place in a medium bowl; stir in red onion. Set aside.
  2. Crumble remaining egg into a small food processor. Stir in shallot, mustard, capers, tarragon, and vinegar; process until finely chopped and a paste starts to form. With motor running, add olive oil; and process until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Add all but about 2 tablespoons of egg sauce (ravigote) to chopped eggs and gently fold to mix. Stir in parsley.
  4. Arrange bread on a work surface. Divide egg mixture among four slices. Top each with arugula and tomato slices. Spread reserved ravigote on remaining four bread slices, and put sandwiches together. Halve and serve.
