The Best Saint Patrick’s Day Tuna Salad Sandwich…Ever!

The Best Saint Patrick’s Day Tuna Salad Sandwich…Ever!

Tuna-Salad1

Just another tuna salad recipe? I beg to differ! This delectable St. Paddy’s Day (or any day) sandwich offers a balance of salty, slightly sweet, crunchy and creamy flavors that satisfies even the most discriminating sandwich spread aficionado’s palate. Not to mention having several colors of the rainbow; does your pot of gold lie at the sandwich’s end? For a bit of fun add a couple drops of green food color to the mayo–if you dare.

This delicious spread goes together quickly and may be proudly served for the main focus of any meal. Add a few chips (crisps) and you’re good to go!
