Tuna, Celery & Apple Salad Sandwich


Servings: 2
This is not your grandmother’s tuna sandwich. This updated version of old-fashioned tuna salad calls for celery, apple, green onion, mayo, lemon zest and Dijon mustard. And it’s served on a sandwich with avocado and Bibb lettuce. (But don’t stop there: You can also add slices of juicy tomato or shredded radish to the sandwich.)


  1. Place the tuna, celery, apple, onion, tarragon as desired, and lemon zest in a bowl and stir to combine. Mix in the mayonnaise, mustard, and salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Lay 2 of the bread slices on a work surface. Use the back of a fork to smash and spread the avocado evenly over each. Top evenly with the lettuce, tuna mixture, and remaining slice of bread. Slice each in half and serve.

Recipe Notes:

Other ways of serving include as an open-face sandwich, over a tossed green salad, or scooped onto a halved avocado.
