This is a good recipe. I would suggest using your own tuna salad recipe and topping with cheese, tomato, and lettuce. Made for ZWT7. Thanks for the recipe.

This was fantastic! The only change I made was put it on keiser rolls. Excellent recipe!

Oh so good! This is really comfort food taken to another level. I just made a tiny amount of tuna salad (didn't bother scaling, but used the quantities I wanted of your ingredients). Used a nice slice of sourdough bread as the base. Instead of lettuce, I topped with a couple of fresh basil leaves and some roka. Left the sandwich topless. Loved it!
