Tuna Cheese Sandwiches

“This is my husband Kent's very favorite sandwich,” says Barbara Billeter from Clovis, California, “and I often make a double batch when lots of family or friends are over.” TIP: “I prepare the tuna mixture in advance and add the lettuce just before assembling the sandwiches. This gives me more time to visit with my company,” suggests Barbara.

    LOVED this! Have made several times using different nuts just from what I have available - all delicious. We really enjoy it grilled too - like a grilled cheese - that crunchy, buttery outside is perfect with the wonderful tuna filling.

    This recipe is so quick and delicious - I love the crunch from the walnuts! I put one of these sandwiches in my husband's lunch, and actually received a "thank you for my sandwich" text - he said it was the highlight of his day!

    Made this for supper Friday evening, & it was a hit! Many of my family members don't like tuna, but this one was great! The only thing I changed was using pecans instead of walnuts. Will definitely make it again. Quick, easy, & delicious!

    These are excellent. I followed the tip and mixed in the shredded lettuce right before serving. I also used toasted white bread since I don't like wheat.
