  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 cup green onion finely diced
  • 1/2 cup celery finely diced
  • 8 large leaves green lettuce or red leaf lettuce
  • 8 slices whole grain bread


  • Mix together tuna, mayonnaise, green onion, and celery. Then add salt and pepper to taste.

  • Assemble the two sides of each sandwich.

TIP: This recipe can also be modified with 2½ pouch bags of tuna. Most bags are 2.6-ounces.
TIP: This recipe makes enough tuna salad for 4 sandwiches. You can easily double it if you are feeding a crowd.
TIP: For added crunch, toast your bread before assembling your sandwiches.
TIP: You can make this meal without bread! For a keto/low carb option, spread spoonfuls of the tuna into lettuce leaves. Another alternative to bread is crackers! Spread spoonfuls of tuna onto crackers. You can also turn these into wraps by replacing the bread with flour tortillas.
TIP: Additional toppings may be added like pickles, relish, mustard.
