Tuna Salad

It's funny that when the children were smaller I would make tuna sandwiches once in awhile but only 1 of the 3 kids really liked them. For a few years I let tuna salad fall by the wayside as I really would rather make a whole meal than assemble a sandwich. I'm just not a sandwich girl, so my kids would eat real meals rather than me throwing together a peanut butter and jelly sandwich (I despise making PB&J!!!! I won't feed my kids them... never have!)

But suddenly, in the last 2 years my husband and my oldest daughter (16) can't get enough tuna salad! Whether they eat it on a sandwich, crackers or with a fork out of a bowl, they adore tuna. This is one salad that I will eat as well. I love the salty green olives in it.

Tuna Salad Sandwich

1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 T lemon juice

Slice the french bread and brush cut sides with oil and season with salt and pepper. Make sandwiches with bread, lettuce, and tuna salad.Print Friendly and PDF
