Did you hear about the recent study that found that Subway tuna sandwiches had no “tuna or fish” in them?

Well, to be frank, that was simply a clickbaity non-scientific piece of fake news. Processed tuna will not contain any tuna DNA – and that’s ok.

Whatever the hype these days, tuna salad sandwiches are awesome. Try this one!

5 Tips for the Most Delicious Tuna Salad

  1. You can use tuna canned in water or in oil, but keep in mind that the taste of salad will be lighter if it is water-packed tuna.
  2. Be creative when it comes to ingredients added to your tuna salad – add your favorite ones to create a unique taste!
  3. Fresh tuna can replace canned tuna.
  4. Use a food processor to make a smooth and creamy salad.
  5. Tuna combined with onion and dill makes the perfect combo!

For the sandwich:

  • 2 baguettes fresh
  • 6 eggs hard-cooked, sliced
  • 1 lettuce

For the Tuna Salad:

For the Corn Salad:

  • 6 pickles diced
  • 2 tomatoes sliced
  • 1 green onion chopped
  • ½ cup canned sweet corn
  • cup olives chopped
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper


  • Fill a saucepan with cold water and add the eggs. The eggs should be completely covered with water. Turn the stove to high heat and bring to a boil. Turn off the heat, cover the saucepan and leave it for 10 minutes.
  • Cool the eggs in a bowl of cold water (or ice water) for a few minutes. Peel the shells and slice the eggs.
  • To make a tuna salad first you need to drain water or oil out of canned tuna. Mix well drained tuna with chopped onion and mayonnaise in a medium size bowl. Add fresh dill and squeezed lemon juice and combine.
  • In another bowl mix together sliced tomato, diced pickles, corn and chopped olives and season with some salt and pepper.
  • Cut baguettes in half to make four sandwiches and then slice each half. Take a piece of bread and put a few lettuce leaves and two spoons of tuna salad on top. Add a layer of corn salad and a few slices of eggs. Add another layer of lettuce leaves and top with the other half of baguette. Enjoy!
