TUNA SALAD

2
cans (6 oz.) tuna, drained

1/2
small onion, chopped
1/2
cup mayo or salad dressing, your choice
1
tsp. fresh lemon juice, optional
1/4
tsp. salt
1/4
tsp. pepper
1/2
tsp. dill weed
1/4
cup finely grated carrot, optional
1
tb. finely chopped green pepper, optional
sometimes i add a little crushed pineapple too, (a few spoonfuls) if i have any on hand. blends beautifully with the bread. just decrease the mayo by a few spoonfuls. if using, omit fresh lemon juice.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place all of tuna salad ingredients in a medium bowl and set aside. (Can be made up ahead for flavors to blend.) Slice round loaf of King's Hawaiian Bread to desired thickness. (Enough filling to make 2 large sandwiches or 4 small.)
2
Layer as follows:
1. bread
2. cheese
3. tomato
4. tuna salad
5. cheese
6. bread

Melted cheese holds everything else in. ;)
3
Butter both sides of bread generously and grill (fry) until golden brown. Serve with sweet potato fries or chips and pickle slices.
4
(Use any left-over sliced, round sweet Hawaiian bread to make the best French Toast you've ever had the next morning!)
