“This is a great way to serve tuna from a can. The more horseradish, the spicier. Delicious quick lunch or dinner!”

  1. Combine the drained tuna, mayonnaise, horseradish sauce, and pickles in a small bowl until evenly mixed. Place a slice of Swiss cheese onto 2 slices of bread, and top with a leaf of lettuce. Spread the tuna mixture onto the lettuce leaves. Top with the tomato and red onion slices, and finish with the remaining slices of bread.

Great recipe to perk up regular 'ol tuna salad! If you like horseradish, then you'll like this recipe. I used Hellman's light mayo and regular horseradish vs. cream style - you can adjust the amount to your tastes. I used pickle relish vs. chopping a dill pickle. I also added some finely chopped celery and a bit of salt and pepper. I put this on toasted whole grain bread along with the Swiss cheese, tomato slices, and some crisp lettuce leaves. Overall, very good with a nice "kick"!

I LOVED this! Only thing is, I can't stand Swiss cheese unless it's melted, so I made this into a tuna melt, and omitted the lettuce. I just eyballed everything, so I'm pretty sure I probably used a tablespoon less mayo (just made it to our personal preferences) and probably more pickles. I added chopped red onion to the tuna salad instead of slices - again, since this was in tuna-melt form! Really delicious! Best tuna melt I've ever had!



Use a little less mayo.
