Crunchy Tuna Salad Sandwiches


I have also enjoyed a good tuna fish sandwich. My husband, on the other hand, has remained convinced of his utter distaste for the mixture. He really doesn't like mayo and most of his tuna salad experiences have been the type where the tuna:mayo ratio is 1:2. I decided to convince him that tuna salad sandwiches could be delicious. 

I succeeded! With the addition of freshly crunchy veggies and garlic, a sprinkle of thyme and pepper, Kevin was in love with the meal. In fact we had this for lunch AND dinner in the same day!

  1. I have never been a fan of mayo either but maybe you could make me a believer with a tofu salad sandwich that looked as tasty as your tuna one :-)

  2. Your tuna salad sandwich sounds very similar to how we make ours. It all depends on the mood I am in as to what all I toss in. In addition to what you put in, I sometimes add homemade zucchini relish, cayenne pepper to spice it up, etc. My daughter likes to toast her bread before putting the tuna on.
