Tuna Salad Sandwich and/or Easy Summer Fare

If I had, had a Tomato, a slice or wedge or two would have

How to Make Tuna Salad Sandwich and/or Easy Summer Fare


  1. I prepare this in a plastic covered bowl that can go directly to the fridge.
  2. Place Tuna in bowl, dice and chop celery and onion. add pimento and jalapeno if desired. Mix somewhat. Onion optional, not everyone likes onion in their Tuna.
  3. Add pinch of Salt and Pepper. Add Mayo and stir and mix well.
  4. Serve as sandwiches or cracker fare. I also love my Tuna Melts with choice of cheese. I prefer Rye Bread for most everything. Enjoy!
