A Simple Staple- Tuna Salad Sandwiches

I almost feel silly making a post about something as simple as tuna salad.  But honestly sometimes it is the little things that make all the difference. This one is yummy!

6 oz. can good quality water-packed tuna, drained and flaked
1/2 cup diced celery
1/4 cup diced red onion
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1-2 Tablespoons dijon mustard
salt and ground black pepper to taste

For on your sandwich
radishes, thinly sliced (about 2-3)
alfalfa sprouts
romaine lettuce
(cucumbers thinly sliced and tomatoes are also good additions)

Place first 6 ingredients in a bowl and mix well to combine.  Onto some nice quality bread, lightly spread one side with a bit of mayonnaise.  Divide the tuna salad mixture amongst half of the slices of bread and layer with the radishes, alfalfa sprouts and romaine lettuce.  Top with remaining slices of bread, press together lightly, and serve.   Pairs beautifully with a bowl of Gourmet Tomato Soup.
