Super-Duper Tuna Sandwiches

If packing this fantastic sandwich for a brown-bag lunch, keep the bread separate from the salad so it doesn’t get soggy. You can also try serving the tuna salad with crackers, as a wrap or on lettuce. Nae Bartolomeo - Indianola, IA

    I prepared this delicious tuna sandwich for my mom and I and it was wonderful, mom loved all the fresh crunchy veggies. I used regular mayonnaise. This recipe is a keeper..

    This is the best tasting tuna sandwich. I added 1 extra tablespoon of mayonaise for my own taste. I also used dill relish instead of sweet relish. Great recipe. Very filling. All the extra vegetables in the mixture makes it really healthy.
