What do You Need To Make Tuna Salad Sandwich
- Mayonnaise: A classic tuna salad sandwich is made with mayonnaise. If you like the calories of your delicious sandwich not too high or eating mayonnaise is not good for you, you can use low-fat mayonnaise or greek yogurt.
- Canned tuna: I used tuna in water for this salad sandwich, but you can also use tuna in oil. Tuna packed in water is a more nutritious option. 1 can of tuna is enough for 2.
- Dill Pickles: Dill pickles go well with tuna and mayonnaise, which I can not compare to anything.
- Red Onion: Chopped red onion gives a nice crunch to the sandwich.
- Parsley: Parsley adds a pop of color and flavor to the sandwich.
- Tomato: Complete the sandwich with thinly sliced tomato.
- Place drained tuna in a bowl.
- Toss together the canned tuna, mayonnaise, finely chopped red onion, chopped pickles, and, parsley. Mix well.
- Add salt and pepper if needed. Serve with sliced tomatoes and toasted bread.
Pro Tips to Make This Recipe
- You can use lettuce or other herbs you like instead of parsley. Some recipes also use chopped celery. Chopped celery adds a nice crunch and texture to the sandwich.
- You can play with more flavors and add a little Dijon mustard.
- Toast bread before serving.
