Tuna Salad for Sandwiches

    8 hours 30 minutes

    This tuna salad combines all of my husband's favourite flavours....olives, pickles, onions, garlic, mustard, eggs etc. This is no ordinary tuna sandwich! Make it the night before so the flavours develop and you'll have hearty, flavoursome sandwiches to take to work the next day.

    This is so yummy. I have it on savoury biscuits such as Premium biscuits or rice cakes. My partner & I demolished half a bowl of it watching footy recently. He loves it.  -  01 Sep 2013


    This is great on crusty fresh bread rolls...I'm not a big fan of plain old tuna so all the other flavours mixed in give this such a welcome boost.  -  21 Apr 2009


    Lots of chopping involved but it was worth it in the end...awesome sandwiches! I suppose you could use Dijon or seeded mustard as an alternative to the yellow kind.  -  19 Apr 2009
