Tuna sandwich recipes really need no introduction - it's how you dress them up that makes the difference.
Tuna (only up to twice a week is recommended) is a good source of essential fatty acids and makes a gluten free tuna sandwich recipe a good basic part of our diet.
Gluten free tuna salad sandwich recipes
- 1 can tuna, drained
- Mayonnaise to taste (helps hold the tuna together)
- Gluten free sandwich bread
- Salt and pepper
- Butter one side of each of the slices of bread.
- In a small bowl, stir together the tuna and mayonnaise. Season to taste. Add lettuce, tomato or other goodies (check out the ideas below).
- Spread the tuna mix onto a slice of bread and cover, butter side down, with the other slice.

|Try adding a half a stalk or so of diced celery. Or a bit of finely chopped onion.|
|I like to add chopped tomato - it gives the mix a pinkish look and tastes delicious. I usually use Roma tomatoes because they have less juice than beefsteak or other varieties.|
|Try adding cucumber slices, or pickles, relish, or capers. My son-in-law sometimes adds diced carrot or green pepper.|
|Add herbs such as parsley and marjoram. (Remember, when you use dried herbs they pack a lot more flavor than fresh ones and will taste stronger the longer the sandwich mix sits.)|
|Turn your tuna salad sandwich into Grilled Tuna & Cheese. Spread the tuna between layers of cheese and grill. This is a pretty substantial tuna sandwich recipe - and it's GOOD!|
Notes for your tuna sandwich recipesI like the flavor of the tuna canned in oil better, but it's probably not as healthy.
Wheat has been genetically modified so that it can keep its elasticity. Primitive wheat would cook a lot more like rice flour. If your rice flour sandwich bread dries out a little, toast it before making the sandwich.
