Introduction: Tuna Salad My Way

Picture of Tuna Salad My Way

I know, ANOTHER recipe form this guy! What can I say, I make more food than anything else! For years I made and ate "normal" tuna salad with mayo type dressing until I ran out of mayo/dressing and needed to make lunch. Searching the frig I saw the Italian dressing..VILOA... a new sandwich!  This also works well on crackers, pita chips or even doritos

Step 1: Setting Up

Tuna Salad is one of those refrigerator velcro type recipes that you can use almost anything in your fridge to make. this time I found a piece of an onion, a lonely pickled jalapeno, a piece of roasted red pepper and some olives. You'll also need some tuna, I like the foil packed tuna but was out so I used the canned type which meant I needed a can opener as well

Step 2: Getting Started

1st I used the can opener to open the entire top of the tuna can, carrying the can to the sink I could apply pressure to the "lid" and squeeze out the water. I dumped the now almost dry tuna into a storage bowl (why dirty a dish just to wash it?) I chopped/diced the onion, peppers and olives and added them to the bowl, finishing up with a couple of tablespoons of italain dressing and mixing it all up

Step 3: Building the Sammich

Put a couple of tablespoons of the mix on your bread, at the last minute I decided to add a slice of cheese, then top with your other slice of bread. Or skip the bread altogether and use crackers or large frito chips or doritos or heck just eat it with a fork !

Step 4: Enjoy

Minus the Spanish Olives, doubling the onion, and adding hot mustard and horseradish it would be my tuna or canned salmon sandwich.

Tuna salad is one of those things that depends on my mood and what's in the frig, I've used ground horseradish and horseradish sauce in the past but never considered mustard of any kind but I'll give it a try. Thank you for commenting

That looks like my sort of thing (it'd just be olive oil though, I don't have dressing, or Viloa...)
