    Tuna Sandwich

    You will need:
    •    2 cans of tuna in vegetable oil
    •    green onions, chopped
    •    2 large fresh tomatoes, sliced
    •    lettuce
    •    1 cucumber, sliced
    •    ¼ cup mayonnaise (I like to use the sweet kind. If you prefer to pack in less calories you may opt to use the low-cal or low-fat kind)
    •    shredded parmesan cheese
    •    1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
    •    slices of white bread

    Directions:
    1.    Cut the cucumber and tomatoes into thin slices.  Chop the green onions finely.
    2.    Drain the oil from the cans of tuna and put the fish in a bowl.  You may mash or shred the tuna if you find the pieces too chunky.  They will spread out evenly, anyway, as you mix all the ingredients together later.
    3.    Add the mayonnaise, apple cider vinegar (to give it that extra oomph), and green onions.  Mix well.
    4.    Spread the mixture on one slice of bread.  Sprinkle some parmesan cheese on the tuna spread.  Top with slices of tomatoes and cucumbers, and leaves of lettuce.  Cover with another slice of bread on top.
    5.    You may cut the sandwich into four squares or four triangles and serve.
    6.    If you want a healthier option, you may use whole wheat bread slices instead of white bread.  You may also use pan de sal.  For an even more textured sandwich, you may also add some celery and/or pickle relish into the mixture.  The sweet, salty, tangy, and crunchy combination will be a winner with your loved ones.
