Tuna Sandwich Crunch

This quick and easy sandwich recipe will make your mouth water and is great to make on the go! No matter how you decide to mix this, tuna salad is one of the most satisfying meals that you can make from basic pantry ingredients.

Why is Tuna so great for students?

Canned tuna is an excellent source of high quality protein with almost no fat and is packed with heart healthy omega 3’s. This inexpensive pantry item is great for not only sandwiches but also salads and pasta salads. With that said, it stores excellent in the fridge and is a great lunch idea to pack if you are in need of on-the-go meal ideas.

Tuna is a must have in my student house and this sandwich is a personal favourite!

How long can I store the tuna mixture?

Once you mix the tuna and mayonnaise, you will want to store any extra in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. If you make the sandwich and hope to store it, you might not be able to call this “Tuna Sandwich Crunch”! The bread will pick up moisture over time, and your tuna sandwich is best enjoyed immediately after making it.
