Tangy Tuna Sandwich Bites

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by not-a-shrimp

This is my twist on the sandwich you used to dread finding in your lunch box as a kid. Now updated and bite-sized, you might not mind so much. To me, the two best breads for this are a Jewish rye and a flax seed bread. It gives these little sandwiches a nice kick. Salt amounts should be adjusted to your personal taste. The vinegar makes extra salt a bit too much for some. Great for lunches, family functions, and afternoon tea.

Made for PAC2009. This is a good sandwich. I reduced to 2 sandwiches as there is only DH and I eating today. I like the combination of flavors although even though I am a rosemary lover it was a bit overpowering of the other flavors. Maybe because the recipe was reduced. Although we liked this sandwich, served with tomato soup and mozzerella cheese, it is a lot to do for a lunch. I will keep this for a soup and sandwich dinner though. Thank you.
