Classic Tuna Salad Sandwich

Here's a simple and delicious recipe for a classic Tuna Salad Sandwich:


  • 1 can (6 ounces) American Tuna, drained
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 celery stalk, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon red onion, finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 slices bread (your choice of type)
  • Lettuce leaves (optional)
  • Tomato slices (optional)


  1. In a bowl, combine the drained tuna, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, chopped celery, and chopped red onion.

  2. Mix the ingredients well until everything is evenly combined. If you like a creamier texture, you can add more mayonnaise according to your preference.

  3. Season the tuna salad with salt and pepper to taste. Be mindful of the salt, as the tuna may already have some saltiness.

  4. Toast the bread slices if desired.

  5. Place a generous portion of the tuna salad onto a slice of bread.

  6. If you like, add lettuce leaves and tomato slices on top of the tuna salad.

  7. Top with another slice of bread to make a sandwich.

  8. Repeat for the remaining slices of bread and tuna salad.

  9. Cut the sandwiches in half if desired and serve.

Feel free to customize your tuna salad sandwich by adding other ingredients like pickles, olives, or herbs. You can also experiment with different types of bread for added variety. Enjoy your delicious and easy Tuna Salad Sandwich!
