My folks started creating salad sandwiches this fashion years agone, and as so much as I’m involved theirs is that the best and solely thanks to build a tuna sandwich. This extremely is that the best ever tuna sandwich.


A good salad sandwich starts with the the salad. And an honest salad should have high-quality canned tuna. If you have got leftover deep-fried tuna steaks, then by all suggests that use them rather than the canned tuna.
