Tuna Salad Sandwich

Source: David Rosengarten
Difficulty: Easy
Makes: 2 servings
Is there anything better for lunch at home than a good old-fashioned tuna salad sandwich? One of my favorite things to eat is a plain tuna salad sandwich, preferably wrapped in foil and stored for a few hours so as to resemble the sandwich that I carried to school in my lunchbox.

1 (6-ounce) can tuna
2 tablespoons low-fat mayonnaise
1 tablespoon chopped celery
4 slices multigrain bread
Extra mayonnaise, optional


  1. Open the tuna can and spoon the tuna into a colander or strainer so the liquid drains off.
  2. Scoop the tuna into a small mixing bowl.
  3. Mash the tuna with a fork for 2 to 3 minutes or until it is extremely well broken up.
  4. Add the mayonnaise and mix well.
  5. Then mash for another 2 to 3 minutes until a very smooth paste is formed.
  6. Add the celery and mix well. Spread the mixture on two slices of bread.
  7. If desired, spread a little extra mayonnaise on the other two slices of bread and top the tuna with them (mayo side down, of course).
