We are celebrating Gilas Pilipinas’ win against Senegal at the Fiba World Cup in Spain and so we are putting some apple slices in our tuna sandwich.
Tuna and Apple Sandwich : something with a little more healthy stuck in it.
I don’t know much about basketball but winning just one game after a lot of losses is just like winning a championship. I see a lot of proud and happy posts on my facebook and instagram feeds — Gilas Pilipinas has the heart of Filipinos. That’s because they play … or fight… with burning passion.
And so Congratulations Gilas Pilipinas for the win!
That’s enough basketball talk. Let’s go back to our Tuna and Apple Sandwich…
Did you know Ykaie doesn’t eat Tuna Sandwich? I think she doesn’t like the fishy and onion-y taste of this spread. She was actually at school when I made this and by the time she came home, it’s all gone.
To replace our usual ham sandwich, I made tuna just to have something healthier — and because I was craving for it! I used tuna flakes with less sodium, light mayo, celery, onions, lettuce, and apple slices on wheat bread.
I think this is all I ate for the day…. it was all because of the apple slices which added some more crunch and a little bit of sweetness into the sandwich.
What else do you add when you make a Tuna Sandwich?
Tuna and Apple Sandwich
- 2 cans of tuna flakes in oil or water, drained
- 1/4 cup chopped celery
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1/4 cup light mayonnaise
- salt and pepper
- wheat bread slices
- apple, sliced thinly
- In a small bowl, make your tuna salad by combining tuna flakes, chopped celery, chopped onions, and light mayo.
- Mix well, and add more mayo if you think it’s still a bit dry. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Chill for about an hour to give chance for the flavors to marry.
- Toast your wheat bread until your desired doneness. I like mine just warm and not fully toasted.
- Top with lettuce, tuna salad, and thinly sliced apple. Top with another bread.
- Serve immediately.
A lovely sandwich with the sweetness of the apple. Blessings, Catherine
delicious sandwich…these are the recipes we love trying at home…comforting,kid-friendly and scrumptious,thanks 🙂
Thanks KUmar! I hope my Ykaie would learn how to like tuna sandwiches.
That sounds so yummy! I am all about sweet and savory. I have GOT to try this 🙂
This is so easy to do, jenna!
Oh! This is so delicious! I’ve just realized that I’m veeery hungry! Great job!
A perfect choice for sharing with the whole family
Very odd combination but sounds delicious!
It is delicious mommy Rose! Thanks!
My grandmother also does not like the smell and taste of tuna and most fish. This tuna and apple sandwich will make up for a good and healthy snack for me in the office.
I bet your officemates would want some too!
Tuna and apple makes a balancing combination in terms of the rich taste of tuna and the sweet and sour taste of Apple. Gilas really come to show the world what we are made off. We could have easily won 3 games had breaks went on our side during end game.
True about the Tuna and apple! As for Gilas Pilipinas, they truly played with passion.
It’s also so healthy and tasty. I hope Gilas wins gold in Asian Games.
Tuna flakes should be drained thoroughly for this purpose to give rich taste of the sandwich. It’s usually with mayo and onions (dried onion’s better).
You are so right!
Tuna and apple sandwich is one of my favorite sandwich! I frequently make one for myself! ^_^ Yummy!

This is good recipe for an easy to make sandwich. Well, adding some coleslaw with apple chunks can do better…for a twist.
I agree, Fernando!
That sandwich looks so yummy,such an easy recipe.
I prefer sandwich without mayo so tuna + bread is fine. 🙂
Awesome! I never tried an apple sandwich before but this is a great idea!

Odd combination… But I guess those who loves tuna sandwiches and apple will like this combination.
