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?
- 2 cans of tuna flakes in oil or water, drained
- ¼ cup chopped celery
- 1 onion, chopped
- ¼ 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.
