Dee Dee's Tuna Salad Sandwich

Diane Atherton


This is a salad that I've been eating since I can remember. My mother made this often and I still love it today! She would serve it on white sandwich bread spread with mayonnaise or we would eat on soda crackers.

A quick and easy salad. Serve on a lettuce lined roll and garnish with olives or tomatoes

Hope you enjoy!
