Tuna-Apple Salad Sandwich

  • Yield 4 servings

Make this sandwich with either light tuna, which has a stronger flavor and is very low in fat, or white albacore, with its milder flavor and small amount of healthy fat. I add curry powder and apple to give this lunch classic a flavor boost.



2 (5-ounce) cans water-packed light or white tune, drained well
1/3 cup light mayonnaise
1/2 medium apple, finely chopped
1 stalk celery, finely chopped
2 tablespoons pickle relish
1 tablespoon mild curry powder
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
8 slices 100% whole-wheat bread, toasted if desired
4 leaves lettuce
4 slices tomato
12 slices apple, thinly sliced for garnish (optional)


  1. Combine the tuna, mayonnaise, apple, celery, relish, and curry powder, if using, in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Divide the salad evenly among 4 slices of bread. Top each with a lettuce leaf, tomato slice, and a second slice of bread. Garnish with apple slices, if desired.
