Recipe by Carrie Biles
"I love creating new variations on tuna sandwiches. I made this for my husband's lunch the other day, and he wanted them again for dinner that night! When I made this, I didn't measure anything, just started throwing things in a bowl...adjust to your taste and enjoy!"

2 (6 ounce) cans
tuna in water, drained
ripe tomato, sliced
Great twist on a tuna sandich! I used roasted red pepper in place of the tomato and garlic powder instead of minced garlic. The flavors of the mustard and pesto didn't overpower the tuna. It was a nice blend.
Made this recipe as is and it was okay. I didn't like the flavor the mustard added to it. I love pesto and it's a great way to jazz up boring old tuna, but I will leave out the mustard in the future.
Made a half recipe with albacore and a little extra mayo to moisten a bit more, then served in pita halves with chopped tomatoes and a bit of shredded mozzarella. (Didn't have lettuce.) Excellent taste. Thanks for the interesting, delicious idea!
My husband, who doesn't even like tuna, liked this recipe. I don't eat tuna any other way now.
pesto....tuna....mustard? you say crazy, I say DELISH!
I was pleasantly surprised with this recipe. I forgot to add the mustard and it was still delicious. I served on toasted whole wheat bread and put just a bit extra pesto (I really love pesto).
I would never have thought to put pesto and tuna together but it works and is yummy! Thanks for the new twist on tuna salad sandwiches!
I love pesto but never thought to put it with tuna. Glad I found this recipe they are a great combo
