This bolder, salmon-enriched tuna salad makes for a powerhouse lunch.

Tuna Sandwich
Katie Morford, MS, RD

More than a tuna salad, this “superfood” sandwich is packed with both tuna and salmon, which gives 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.
