5 stars from 4 ratings of Awesome Tuna Sandwich Recipe


Working for many years in German Cafeterias, taught me a lot of knowledge not only in how to politely and correctly served the people, but also how to bake cakes and make sandwiches. Though the job was a bit stressful, I enjoyed it as it was one way of getting to know other people in different nationalities like Dutch, Italians, Polish, Croatians, Turks and of course Germans. It was another family for me at work as me and my co-workers enjoyed our companies and learned from each others languages, customs and traditions.

Some Health Benefits Of:

  • Tuna has a lot of protein and minerals like magnesium, selenium and potassium.
  • It contains Omega 3 fatty acids which is good for our hearts and our eyes.
  • It prevents cancer like ovarian and pancreatic cancer.

Step by Step

  1. Open the can of tuna flakes. Discard the water or oil. Put it in a bowl. Add the miracle whip or remoulade. Mix well with a fork.
  2. Boil the eggs hard in an egg boiler or a kettle. Peel off the hard boiled eggs and slice them to cubes. Add to the tuna flakes mixture. Add salt and pepper and taste the mixture according to your taste. Set aside in the refrigerator.
  3. Meanwhile, wash the lettuce and the tomatoes. Pat the lettuce dry and slice the tomatoes thinly.
  4. If you have bought a fresh mandarine or orange, peel off the skin and cut the segments (discard the seeds) of the fruit into cubes. If you have bought the canned mandarine or orange, you only have to cut them into cubes. Then add these cubes to the tuna flakes mixture. Mix well.
  5. Spread the butter or margarine to one side of the bread. Put lettuce leaves on top. Then spread the tuna flakes mixture on top of the lettuce. Arrange tomato slices on top and spread salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Add a few slices of oranges and washed sprigs of parsley on top, then cover the sandwich with another piece of buttered bread. Make the same tuna sandwich with the rest of the bread. Boun Apetit!

Before I read this article, Thelma, I thought tuna fish? It's so plebian. How can you make this sandwich original? Then I saw the orange slices. Now that a great tangy idea.

Hahaha... That´s what I like here in HP. Not only that I get to know interesting, intelligent, loveble and kind people, I learned a lot of new words as well. I never heard of plebian before that I have to search it in google. Awesome! Posh word. I never thought about the negativity of this word.

As of this recipe, yep, this orange slices make the sandwich more yummy. Thanks for stopping by, drbj. Have a lovely day;-)

Yes, you can use yoghurt instead of mayonnaise. It is healthier than mayonnaise. I hope you´ll like it. Thanks for stopping by.

Hello Sarah Bello. I hope you´ll try this tuna sandwich with mandarine or orange slices. It´s a change for our usual tuna sandwich. Thanks for stopping by. Have a nice day!

Thelma, here's an update: I just made this tuna sandwich for lunch, and I am very satisfied and happy. I love tuna sandwiches anyway, but this version is fantastic! I'm so glad I tried it. The only difference with mine is that I used Oat Nut bread, and spinach instead of lettuce. I even cut it in a triangle, instead of my usual rectangle cut. It looks fancier, and reminds me of when my aunt used to make me a sandwich when I was a kid. Thanks again for sharing this with us.

This time I am going to share this!

Very interesting twist with the oranges, however it looks unique but yummy at the same time. I love tuna and this recipe seems right up my alley.

Hi Kathryn, sorry to reply this late. I'm in Amsterdam visiting my relatives and I'm using my niece laptop to catch up a bit in HP. I'm glad you tried and liked this sandwich with a bit of a change. I'll try what you have made. Was the spinach raw? If it is, I did not know that you can eat raw spinach. Thanks for your visit and for the sharing. Have a great week!

Hi Careermommy! Thanks for stopping by. I hope you'll try this recipe in the future. It would be nice to know how you will like it. Have a nice week!

Thelma, yes, I used raw spinach. In the U.S., we use (raw) spinach in tossed salads commonly. It has a different taste and texture than cooked, but it tastes good, and is very healthy.


Thelma Alberts profile image

Thelma Alberts 3 years ago from Germany Author

It's great to know about that Kathryn. I have not tried raw spinach yet in my salads or my sandwiches. It was always in stir fry or soups. I have to try that at home. Thanks for coming back. Have a nice day!
