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

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.

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!
