A yummy, healthy tuna salad sandwich from Cooking Light. You can substitute solid white tuna canned in water if you don't have any fresh.

An absolutely delicious tuna sandwich filling! I used 2 cans of chunk light tuna in replace of the tuna steaks. Looking forward to making this again. Thank you for posting this, Ppaperdoll!!! :)
