I made you a sandwich.

I hope you like tuna.

Okay, actually I made myself a sandwich but I’m sharing it with you because it’s really tasty and it contains some of my favorite pantry staples.

This particular sandwich came to be years ago because I wanted a tuna sandwich but I wanted to jazz it up a bit.

I think I may have been out of relish or eggs or maybe even both at the time and since tuna with just mayo is sad, I searched my kitchen to see what else I could come up with and this particular version of the tuna sandwich was born.

My husband and I have been eating it this way ever since.

You can use leftover tuna, canned tuna, or those little pouches of tuna.

If you don’t like tuna, you could substitute salmon or chicken instead.

For a tasty vegan option, use mashed chick peas.




kalamata olives

roasted red pepper

marinated artichokes

sun-dried tomatoes

lemon zest

1-2 tbsp mayonnaise or veganaise (optional)

parsley (optional)

salt & pepper

This really couldn’t be easier to put together. Just shred the tuna with a fork. Then chop up the olives, pepper, tomatoes, and artichokes and add to the tuna. How much of each of those things you add is totally up to you.

Add the zest of a lemon along with a good squeeze of the juice. Add salt and pepper to taste and chopped parsley if you want it.

Sometimes I add mayo and sometimes I don’t. This one is your call. I think the extra creaminess is great on a sandwich or in a wrap, but if I’m topping a salad with the mixture, I leave out the mayo.

That’s pretty much it. Just spoon your tuna mixture onto a hoagie roll, roll-up in a wrap, mix into a salad, or just eat it straight from the bowl with some crackers or pita chips.
