Healthy Tuna Sandwich Recipe {Tuscan Style}

Tuscan Tuna Sandwich
I made this amazingly delicious sandwich in less than ten minutes last Saturday. The original recipe was featured in an old Health Magazine  that I had stashed away for the purpose of trying all the recipes.

This particular sandwich was featured in the article "New Year, New Skinny You: Sensational lunches and dinners-400 calories each". To get this recipe up to 400, you'll need to add an orange on the side. Wow! Now that's a lot of food, and the omega-3 fatty acids in tuna will help you fill full longer.

My mom, not a great lover of tuna, was exceedingly surprised at how delicious is was. She asked me what was in it (imagine a  voice filled with amazement here)...always a good sign. I'll definitely be making this again.

Tuscan Tuna Sandwich

  • 3 ounces light tuna in water, drained
  • 5 chopped jumbo black olives
  • 2 chopped celery ribs (I left this out)
  • juice from 1/2 lemon (I substituted 1 tablespoon lemon juice)
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 pieces toasted whole-grain bread
  • 1/2 cup lettuce greens (I was out of lettuce :-(---spinach would be my first choice)
  • onions & teaspoon mustard (optional)
  1. Mix tuna, olives, celery, lemon juice, and olive oil in medium bowl.
  2. Place mixture on 1 piece toasted whole-grain bread and top with lettuce greens. Then top with another piece of bread.
  3. Enjoy!
