THE BEST TUNA SANDWICH RECIPE - FOOD.COM
Years ago, there was a deli in the town I worked and everyday faithfully, I would stop there for the Tuna sandwich (which was the best ever!) I became friends with the older lady that always worked the deli and she gave me the recipe. I will never forget what she told me.."The more colors in your Tuna, the better the flavor" sadly, the deli went out of business, but I never forgot her recipe. This tuna has lots of veggies in it, but if you dice them very small, it's so good! Remember, Tuna is a finicky meal.. too much mayo makes it watery and too little makes it dry and fishy.. be sure to use your best judgement and liking. (This recipe makes a lot) you can lessen it
