Great-tasting sandwiches do make me giddy every after bite. ‘Great-tasting’, to me, would mean chunky tuna, creamy mayo and a dash of mustard, all in between two slices of freshly grilled whole-wheat bread!
I keep a jar of sandwich spreads in my ref handy for ’emergency’ purposes. There are times when Jake and I would experience some pangs of hunger in the middle of the night and would automatically turn to these bottled spreads to stuff our famished tummies. One of my favorite spreads would be this mustard-mayo tuna sandwich spread. It’s got the merry mix of creaminess, chunkiness, yumminess and HAPPINESS in every bite! Ahh, it’s so good that I even convert it into a salad topping when there’s extra. The crunch factor is made possible by the onion, cucumber and celery, while the zing from the mustard and boy, do they rock!
Mayo-Mustard Tuna Sandwich
1 can tuna (solid in brine or hot and spicy)
3/4 cup mayo
3 tbsp mustard
1 medium-sized onion, minced
1/4 cup cucumber, chopped
1/4 cup celery, chopped (optional)
2 slices of cheddar cheese
a slice of tomato
salt and pepper to taste
2 slices whole wheat bread
1. Drain tuna from all the liquid. To take off the ‘lansa’ factor, soak tuna chunks in 3 cups drinking water and drain.
2. Mix tuna, onion, cucumber, celery, mayo and mustard together. Season with salt and pepper.
3. On a slice of grilled bread, put lettuce, cheese, tuna spread and a slice of tomato on top. Seal with the remaining grilled slice. Serve.
