Expert Tips

Albacore tuna has a very mild flavor and firm texture. You could substitute chunk light tuna, but the flavor will be stronger. For an extra-special appetizer, substitute a can of lump crabmeat.

Thinly slice lettuce by rolling up a few leaves and slicing across with a sharp knife, or purchase a bag of already shredded lettuce from the produce section of the grocery store.
