Are you ready for The BEST-EVER Tuna Salad Sandwich? Seriously folks, this recipe is the real deal. We´re talking an insane amount of flavor, made with the most basic ingredients and it´s all done in under 20 minutes.
You can prep the tuna salad before hand and make delicious sandwiches at any time. Perfect to take to work, to enjoy as an easy weeknight dinner or even for a relaxed weekend lunch.
To make the tuna salad, I used tinned Spanish tuna in olive oil, but you can use any tinned tuna you like. I also used pimento-stuffed green Spanish olives. The olives give the tuna salad an incredible punch of flavors.
TIPS & TRICKS to make this Recipe: When you toast the bread, make sure to not over-toast it. I like to brush the breads with a little extra virgin olive oil and lightly grill them on a grilling pan. This technique gives the bread an incredible texture. If you prep the tuna salad for future use, make sure you cover it so it doesn´t dry up. It will hold for up 3 days in the fridge.
