I was thinking about running out to the store and getting the making for tuna salad sammiches for lunch. I am hopeful that somebody here can give me some tips for making them exotic and exciting. I've always just gone the tried and true mayo and pickle route.

What can make my sammich eating experience more delightful. I'm afraid I have to draw the line at beans though.

I put cajun seasoning, cayenne pepper powder, and jalepeno slices in mine.

Salt, pepper, and mayo.

If you want fancy, diced dill pickles or dill relish.

Some things need to be kept simple.

Tomatoes, onions, lettuce and BACON on toast. Do you even have to ask!

I wonder how onions would be....

HOT TUNA:

saute some celery and onions
add tuna, scoop of cottage cheese, some mozzarella cheese, and a squirt of mustard. I sometimes throw in italian herbs and such.
Cook until warm, put on a piece of bread and bake at 400 for about 10 minutes.

It is very good.

Oh oh oh, I can answer this one! You can add fresh chopped red onion and/or chives. They also sell freezedried red onions and chives in the vegetable section. Once you mix it with the tuna/mayo, it rehydrates very nicely!

What's a good bread? I don't have a toaster and refuse to have my money go to big toaster.

Try using fresh tuna in your salad.

Dill pickle relish.

Black olives.

Mayo

Lots of fresh ground black pepper.

This sounds good. And not too complicated.

You gotta toast the bread! Maybe broil it? But keep an eye on it, it doesn't take long.

Oh, for fancy.... maybe try a better tuna (albacore).

Mayo, cilantro, jalapeno, hard boiled eggs, onion, a little mustard, salt and pepper.

I usually fore go the relish or pickle and add finely chopped celery instead. Tomato slices as well as bean sprouts go well, maybe a little pepper and celery salt. Use chunk light albacore tuna in water and Texas toast.

Chopped red onion, pickles, mayo, sprinkle in some chipotle powder. Mix in some grated cheese. Roll it up in a flour tortilla and brown in olive oil until you know the cheese has melted.

I'm off to the store.


I think I'm going to play it by ear, and mix and match some of the ideas here. I think I might even buy a toaster.




Thanks for the ideas.

I always put celery and relish in mine.

I don't have a toaster either. I put the oven on broil for a short time each side.

That's really good too!

ranch dressing instead of mayo.

I use this shortcut on camping trips.
Link Posted: 11/1/2009 8:29:46 AM EST
Mayo, salt, pepper, a little chopped onion, sweet pickle relish, chopped boiled egg. Maybe a little chopped celery. A dash of celery salt is good in tuna.
Link Posted: 11/1/2009 8:58:15 AM EST
Don't forget to add a dash of Worcestershire sauce.

Well, I guess that's one way to add some more protein?

Tuna, a LITTLE mayo ( enough to bind but not enough to make it goopy), caraway seeds, diced onion capers and MAYBE a dash of worchestershire sauce. Put in a pita opened like they do at a Pita Pit restaurant. Roll up the warp and put undre boryler until the pita is crisp all over, turn as necessary

Get the solid white albacore and avoid the mushy stuff.
Link Posted: 11/1/2009 8:10:49 PM EST

Sometimes I add onion if theres some around.
