Tuna Waldorf Salad

This is the tastiest tuna sandwich I've ever had. You might know that if you had been there when Taylor and I enjoyed it for lunch . . . and again an hour later for a second lunch! It can also be quite healthy with it's lean meat, fruit, and veggies. That's if you cut back on the mayo. It would also be delicious with canned chicken.

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise (I used half this - you can also use cottage cheese or yogurt)
  • 1 tablespoon prepared Dijon-style mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon curry powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 (6 ounce) can water-packed tuna (I doubled this)
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped (I used green onion)
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, cored and diced
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 1 teaspoon sweet pickle relish
  • 4 large croissants (or other bread or crackers)
  • 4 leaves lettuce
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, mustard, curry powder, salt and pepper. Add tuna, shallot, apple, walnuts, celery and pickle relish and toss until all ingredients are coated with dressing.
  2. Lightly toast the croissants. Split in half, place a lettuce leaf on the bottom half of the croissant and fill with tuna salad. Top with a slice of Swiss cheese and the top half of the croissant. Serve with a dill pickle and potato chips. Bon appetit!

This was SO yummy. I doubt I'll ever again thoroughly enjoy a tuna sandwich without curry. Even today I ate my lunch, then remembered the leftovers in the fridge, and ate half a tuna sandwich just to taste it!
