A reader writes in asking for the recipe for the best tuna sandwich Ive ever eaten.
The sandwich was found at La Grande Orange cafe at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport yes, an airport.
La Grande Orange was happy to share its recipe.
The tuna salad comes together in minutes and is great served either as a sandwich or on its own.
LA GRANDE ORANGES TUNA SALAD SANDWICH
15 minutes, serves 2
2 tablespoons golden raisins
2 tablespoons chopped celery
2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 tablespoons chopped chives
Pinch ground black pepper
1 (6-ounce) can tuna (water-packed), drained
4 slices toasted whole-grain bread
A few thin slices cucumber
A few thin slices apple
A few thin slices tomato
Small handful mixed green lettuce
In a medium bowl, combine the raisins, celery, relish, mayonnaise, chives and pepper. Gently fold in the tuna. This makes about 1 1/2 cups salad; cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
Divide the tuna salad into two portions, spooning each onto a slice of toasted bread. Top the salad with a little cucumber, apple, tomato and lettuce, then top each sandwich with a second slice of toasted bread. Serve immediately.
