Hey everyone today’s recipe is for Tuna Salad Sandwiches. Who is ready for some healthy sandwich ideas? These sandwiches are perfect anytime you need a lunch, brunch or light dinner recipe. I never tire of a good sandwich do you?
You can pack this recipe away for picnic season too. One thing I like doing with tuna salad is taking the tuna salad in a container, packed on ice. Then at my destination such as the park making them. They are quick, easy to make and fill you up. I love packing up sandwiches for kids to take to our nearby park for play dates. You can make the mix ahead of time but, I prefer to assemble right before leaving so the bread doesn’t get soggy.
To this day I love eating potato chips with tuna. But, since I’m watching what I eat I’ve been foregoing adding them to my plate. I’ve been having a carrot apple juice instead. Keeping my lunch on the healthy side. Let’s get started with this recipe.
