Recipe by Kitchen Witch Myrkr

Well, we all don't have that much time or that much money, so, this will have to do! A great quick sandwich that I have eaten... a lot. I suggest putting the extra tuna mix into your fridge.

This was a good basic recipe but it needed a lot more mayo for us. I didn't measure the mayo after the 4 tablespoons that the recipe called for it, I just spooned it in. I also used onion powder instead of onion salt as I don't buy onion salt.
