Tuna Salad Sandwiches

Some of y'all are probably like, "doesn't everyone know how to make tuna salad?" or "is she really sharing a recipe for this?" ....... Yes, I am really sharing a recipe for tuna salad! I know there are a million and one recipes out there for it, but I have to make it a million and two - because I like even numbers! :D

I don't know about you, but when the weather gets warmer, I tend to look for simple recipes. I don't want to spend all day in a hot kitchen - and I know you don't either! I am particularly fond of "no cook" recipes in the summer {yes, even us food bloggers take the easy (and cooler) road sometimes - no shame in my game!} - they keep my house cool and they tend to be lighter meals! Who wants to eat a big ol' meal in the summer? Exactly ... no one! We usually eat a lot more sandwiches and cold side salads in the summer, and I'm guessing many other families do as well.

Today, I'm sharing a simple, no-fuss Tuna Salad Sandwich recipe. It's a very basic, no-frills sort of recipe. Sometimes, those are the best ones - aren't they?! Occasionally, I like to top my sandwiches with lettuce and tomato ... other times, it's just straight up tuna salad. 

During the summer, we probably have these 2 or 3 times a month for lunch or dinner. They can be whipped up in no time and they are very budget friendly!

  8. Hm, I don't think I've put celery in tuna salad before, but I bet it would be great! I always add in pickle relish. =)
