A sandwich is one of the easiest things to make for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or as a snack. There are various types of sandwiches—with meat, fish, or even vegetarian. Tuna sandwiches are one of the most popular. It is not only quick and tasty, but also has a lot of health benefits, especially for kids, as it contains over 300 milligrams (0.011 oz) of omega-3 fatty acids per serving.

Canned tuna first appeared at the beginning of the 20th century and quickly became popular. Tuna can be canned in water, brine, various oils, and/or sauces. According to Wikipedia, 52% of canned tuna in the United States is used for sandwiches.

In this article, I'd like to share three variants of tuna sandwich recipe. Try to make them all and choose what you like the best.
