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.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 (6 ounce) cans tuna
  • 4 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 12 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1 teaspoon onion salt
  • 8 slices bread (seeded rye preferred)
  • 8 lettuce leaves (iceberg preferred, crunchy texture preferred)


  1. Open tuna cans.
  2. Drain the liquid from the tuna cans.
  3. Put the tuna together in a container.
  4. Add the mayonnaise.
  5. Add the celery salt.
  6. Add the onion salt.
  7. Toast 2 slices of bread.
  8. While the bread is toasting, mix the ingredients together. Make sure that the tuna is broken down as much as possible.
  9. Wash the lettuce leaves.
  10. Spread the tuna-mayo mix onto both slices of bread.
  11. Put one lettuce leaf atop each slice of bread.
  12. Put the two piece of bread together.
  13. Eat up!

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.

Yum! I just gobbled down this Tuna sandwich and my tummy is very happy. I used flavoured tuna (Tomato & Olive) and Soya Mayonnaise but otherwise I kept to the recipe. It made a quick and tasty lunch. Thank you Kitchen Witch Myrkr

An extremely tasty tuna salad sandwich recipe - we loved these! I used the celery salt and the onion salt as listed - but I think it would have been nice for a little green onion to have been added! However, these were Budget filling sandwiches, and made very tasty with the flavoured salts. I did not toast these, but made them for our picnic lunch yesterday; I left some filling to make a sandwich today, when I took the photos. I used homemade oat bread and mixed salad leaves. Made for the Soup, Salad, Starter and Sandwich Photo Tag event in the photo forum - thanks! FT:-)
