Tuna salad sandwiches are a great lunch option if you want to eat something quick with protein. Another plus is you can probably make it with ingredients that are already in your pantry. This is a recipe that I have perfected over the years; it is savory and a little tangy. Put a few slices of cheese on top and pop it in the oven for a tuna melt! I would not recommend bringing this to the office/school because of its strong smell. But since most of us are still working from home this an easy alternative to eating out. Just make sure you keep your mouthwash close by. So dig out those tuna cans to make a delicious sandwich that will satisfy your hunger.
Two, 6-oz can white meat tuna packed in water, drained
salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste
2-3 tablespoons minced red onion
1/3 cup minced celery
1/3 cup mayo (I prefer the Japanese mayo "Kewpie")
1 teaspoon chopped flat-leaf parsley
1/2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon relish
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Lettuce and/or bread for serving
1/2 teaspoon chili flakes (optional)
Mix all ingredients well in a medium-sized bowl.
Place salad in lettuce wraps or on toasted bread to form a sandwich. If you would like a tuna melt, place cheese in the middle tuna sandwich and melt the cheese in the oven for a few minutes. Serve immediately with some crisps and enjoy!
