Tuna Salad Sandwich

For those of you that are tuna lovers I have what I would classify as "the best" tuna sandwich ever!

It's from Martha Stewart and I will say..."she has done it again." You have to use good sourdough bread for it though to get the perfect taste and texture.

Martha's Favorite Tuna Salad Sandwich
MAKES 4

12 ounces good-quality tuna, packed in oil, drained
2 stalks celery, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced
1 apple, such as McIntosh or Gala, peeled, cored, and cut into 1/4-inch pieces
3 tablespoons light mayonnaise, preferably Ojai Cook’s Lemonaise Light
2 tablespoons freshly chopped basil leaves
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
8 slices best-quality sourdough


In a medium bowl, combine tuna, celery, apple, mayonnaise, basil, and lemon juice; mix well. Season with salt and pepper.

On a work surface, divide tuna salad among 4 slices bread; top with remaining 4 slices bread. Serve.

Yummy...this sounds great. I've never had a tuna salad sandwich with apples in it...

Wow, what a great recipe. I love tuna sandwiches, but I have a friend who hated them. When I made this tuna salad, I convinced her to try it, and it totally converted her. Now she loves tuna too! Thanks!
