Tuna Salad Sandwich

Tuna salad sandwiches are very common in the US and are made in different ways. I prefer this way of making it because I am not crazy about things like dill or relish in my tuna salad. So, although this is really easy I will share it with you. This is the way we used to make our tuna salad at the deli in New Hampshire. Try and buy white meat, preferably Albacore, in water. I know it costs a little more than light tuna but I think it makes all the difference.

Here is what you need to make 4 sandwiches:
8 slices sandwich bread
1 -12 oz. can tuna
2 large celery stalks, finely chopped
1 lemon
2 heaping tablespoons of mayonnaise
Salt & Pepper
2 tomatoes, sliced
Red onion slices
Lettuce leaves
Pickle slices or jalapeno slices

Drain the tuna salad well. Place it in a bowl and flake it. Squeeze the lemon onto the fish. Use a small colander if you have one in order to keep the seeds out of the tuna. Fish out any seeds that end up on your fish. Add the celery and the mayo. Mix well. Season with salt and pepper.

Toast your bread. Place a lettuce leaf one a slice of toasted bread. Add 1/4 of the tuna salad on the lettuce. Layer the onion and pickles ( or jalapenos) on the fish. Top with the tomato slices and another lettuce leaf. Cover with the remaining piece of bread. Enjoy!
