Tuna Salad for the Ladies Luncheon

Nothing says Ladies' Luncheon like finger sandwiches, ice tea and rich desserts.  Last week, I signed up to make tuna salad sandwiches for my Community Bible Study class.  I love a GOOD tuna salad sandwich.  No other sandwich is more filling.

Now, a really good tuna salad sandwich must be made to be sweet and salty with crunch and chew.  The bread needs to be firm or toasted, or both!   Let's not leave out, a good kosher spear keeping it company on the side.


Makes 4 (1/2 cup) servings

  • 1 (12 ounce) can light tuna
  • 1/4 cup celery, chopped
  • 1/4 cup broccoli, chopped
  • 1/4 cup golden raisins
  • 1/2 cup apple, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup reduced fat egg-free mayonnaise

Drain tuna well.  Mix all ingredients in a medium size bowl.  Make it a day ahead or serve immediately as a sandwich or with your favorite leafy mixed greens.

What do you like in your tuna salad?

  • Nice salad (and I’m not even a lady, sorry!) and my favorite way too to drop a few pounds is to cut back on the starchy stuff such as bread – this would be great stuffed into some crispy leaves as your photo and text suggests. Will have that for lunch at least one day this week, for sure.
