not-tuna salad

sandwich-plated-not-slicedMy allergies can be rather un-gentle sometimes.  For instance, I eat canned tuna (or any tuna for that matter) and I vomit.

For those of you who stopped reading there, I understand.  For those of you who didn’t, you’re in for a treat:

You can make tuna-fish sandwiches with other fish.



I am about to reveal a video on what it took for me to spend two weeks in the desert alone without ANY-GROCERY-SHOPPING-AT-ALL and this recipe was an absolute staple in said task.  Behold: my mother’s tuna fish sandwich recipe but with salmon instead.  I’m in love.


Avoiding all extraneous enthusiasm: the key to a great tuna-fish or fish-salad sandwich, to me, is in the proportion of relish and the mayo.  It’s really quite simple, and so g-darn delicious when done right.  This, my dear friends, is my way and the only way I want to make this.  And the only way I can, given my God-sent tuna allergy.  Whyyyyyyy.

  1. Okay, so this kind of isn’t about your recipe, but more about something I do. Turning your idea completely opposite- I take tuna and mix it with salsa. Top it on a bed of greens with onions, corn, … you get the idea. And Surprise- It’s Santa Fe Salmon Salad. My idea didn’t come from the desert though; it is based on having $3 in my pocket.
