Tips

Expert Tips

  • Crushed pineapple is the secret ingredient in these tuna sandwiches, providing sweetness, tang and moisture.
  • To reduce the fat in each sandwich by about 19 grams use fat-free mayonnaise and reduced-fat mayonnaise and reduced-fat American cheese in place of the regular products. This lighter sandwich has about 160 fewer calories than the original recipe.
  • Serve these sandwiches with raw vegetables such as baby-cut carrots, celery, bell pepper strips and cherry tomatoes; complete the menu with corn chips and frosty mugs of root beer.
