Tuna Sandwich
 Katie Morford, MS, RD

More than a tuna salad, this “superfood” sandwich is packed with both tuna and salmon, which give you a boost of protein, omega-3 fats, and selenium. Served between two slices of whole-grain bread or stuffed in a whole-wheat pita, it’s a quick and easy lunch for any busy day.

Prep time

10 min.

  • One 5 oz can tuna
  • One 5-to 6-oz can wild salmon
  • 3 medium stalks celery, diced
  • 2 Tbsp capers, lightly chopped
  • ¼ cup diced red onion
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 Tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2 to 3 Tbsp plain Greek yogurt
  • 8 slices 100% whole wheat bread

Empty the tuna and salmon into a medium bowl and break up with a fork.

Scoop ¼ of the fish salad onto 1 slice of bread and top with a second slice. 

Cover and store leftovers in the refrigerator until ready to use.
