Canned tuna is one of those food items that you constantly have in your cupboards, but never really use. Why? Well, it’s boring. It doesn’t really taste that great and it looks like cat food. You’ve probably gotten tired of making tuna noodle casserole and tuna sandwiches don’t really hold any appeal over you, but wait! Tuna sandwiches don’t have to be the same mundane sandwiches that you’ve been choking down since you were a kid. Now that YOU make the food, you have control of the taste. This new twist on a pretty classic sandwich will have you wondering why you didn’t keep more cans of tuna on hand. The curry powder adds an exotic flavor that will entice your taste buds and the chopped apples adds much needed texture. That final little addition of lemon juice adds just the right amount of brightness that complements the apple and curry powder perfectly. I used alfalfa sprouts since I didn’t have any lettuce on hand at the time, and it worked out quite well, but if you don’t have sprouts lettuce will do just fine. Plus, it literally takes just 6 minutes to make.

Ingredients

  • 1 3 oz can of tuna in water, drained
  • 2 tbs of peeled apples, chopped
  • 2 tbs mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 slices of whole wheat bread, toasted
  • 1/8 cup of alfalfa sprouts (or lettuce)
  • 1/2 tomato, sliced

Directions

  1. Put the slices of whole wheat bread in the toaster and set to toast for 5 minutes
  2. Empty drained tuna in a small bowl.
  3. Chop up apples and add to the tuna.
  4. Combine mayonnaise, curry powder, salt, pepper and lemon juice. Mix until everything is well incorporated.
  5. Rinse alfalfa sprouts and tomato.
  6. Slice up tomato.
  7. At this time the toast should be finished. Place all ingredients on the toast and enjoy.
