Tuna Salad Sandwiches

Today, I’d like to share with you my recipe for Tuna Salad Sandwiches. Well, I usually try to avoid using canned meat or fish to prepare meals for my family. However, I made some exceptions for good quality canned tuna and sardines when it comes to sandwich fillings. I would ensure lots of diced fresh veggies are added to the flaked filling mixture to make it as healthy as possible. This version of my tuna salad sandwich recipe was concocted many years ago, back when I was a student living in NYC. Gosh, it’s been that long!! :-) Ever since, it’s been pretty popular with family and friends who have tasted it. So, I thought I would share it with you, if you like tuna salad sandwiches. Have a go at my easy recipe and tell me what you think! Enjoy.

Tuna Salad Sandwiches
(Printable Recipe)


1 Loaf of Slice Sandwich Bread
Green Leaf Lettuce, washed and dried

Tuna Salad
2 Can (142g/5 oz each) Solid White Tuna In Water, drained and flaked
½ of Small Red Onion, finely diced
1 Red Chili, finely chopped
½ of Red Bell Pepper, finely diced
½ of Green Bell Pepper, finely diced
1 Ripe Tomato, seeded and diced
1 Big Juicy Lemon, juiced or to taste
5 Tbsp Mayonnaise
Sea Salt
Freshly Ground Black Pepper


In a large bowl, combine the tuna, onion, chili, peppers, tomato, lemon juice, mayonnaise, and season with salt and pepper. Let the tuna salad rest for at least 10 minutes before serving.

To serve, lay a piece of green lettuce on the bread and spread some tuna salad over it. Top with another piece of bread. Serve immediately with some fries or chips.

Serves 4


  1. Looks delicious. Have you tried adding celery? I always add a stalk or two for crunch. Never thought about bell peppers but will try it for the weekend. Nice lunch with chips and lemonade!

  2. Your tuna salad looks really light and refreshing! I love the fresh veggies you put in it.

  3. Looks wonderful- and not a piece of celery (which I hate) in sight.

  4. I normally dislike tuna sandwiches, but this one looks really nice. Especially with the addition of peppers.

  5. I'm weird because I add avocado and baby spinach! I think the bell pepper would come out really good too if it is roasted.

  6. Try tuna, Peppadew (piquanté) peppers with avocado and red onion and lemon.

    Dice onion, mash in the avocado and add enough tuna so it becomes 2 parts tuna 1 part avocado.

    Add Peppadew (piquanté) peppers to taste and season with lemon and black pepper.

  7. Wow. Your tuna salad looks so full of ingredients! It looks phenomenal!

  8. mmm..i love everything thats going into this!!

  9. Looking at those pictures my mouth started watering and read this blog for two times. Can you please some nice recipes this one was a lovely one. I will try this now..

  10. this was really good! i also added some celery too! and i halved the lemon content because i didn't want it to get too wet.

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
