There are many different ways to make and serve tuna sandwiches.

A sandwich is one of the easiest things to make for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or as a snack. There are various types of sandwiches: meat, fish, or even vegetarian. Tuna sandwiches are one of the most popular. They're not only quick and tasty, but they also have a lot of health benefits, especially for kids, as they contain over 300 milligrams (0.011 ounces) 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 on a tuna sandwich recipe. Try to make them all and choose what you like the best.
