Tuna Salad Sandwich Recipe

First you need to start with the tuna packed in olive oil, not water. (I'm referring of course to canned tuna. If you have left over cooked tuna steaks, then by all means use them instead of the canned tuna.) Trader Joe's has an excellent canned tuna packed in olive oil. The reason you want olive oil instead of water is that the tuna packed this way is much more flavorful. Also, you do not need to add as much mayo.

1 can of tuna fish packed in olive oil (do not drain the oil)
⅔ cup of cottage cheese
2 tablespoons of mayonaise
¼ purple onion, chopped finely
1 celery stalk, chopped finely
1 tablespoon of capers
juice of half of a lemon
pinch or two of dill
¼ cup of chopped parsley, not packed down
lettuce and sliced tomatoes, optional
slices of French bread, lightly toasted

Mix all of the ingredients. Be sure not to drain the olive oil from the can of tuna. Use it instead in the tuna salad mixture. Serve on toast, either open faced, or in a regular sandwich with lettuce and tomatoes. For a low carb option, serve on sliced lettuce.
