I don't leave it in the can because sometimes doing that causes a tinny taste. After opening it I put it in another container and refrigerate. Then I'll eat it straight or mix in mayo for another sandwich. It's very plain

We sometimes put a hard boiled egg into tuna salad...but not all the time. Hubby and I like our tuna salad differently...so I split a can of tuna and make up two sandwiches.

Mine: Tuna, mayo (Hellman's or Duke's), onion, hard boiled egg if we planned ahead, a dash of good garlic powder, paprika.
His: Tuna, Miracle Whip (urgh!!), relish (either pickle or hot pepper), hard boiled egg if we planned ahead.

Served on anything from crackers, lettuce leaves, leffsa, bread rounds, bun or plain on sandwich bread.

I don't think I've ever seen a two ounce can of tuna. The small cans that I buy are 6 oz. With mayo, chopped celery, maybe onions, sometimes tomatoes or cukes, I can get *possibly* 3 sandwiches.

A dozen?? Never. No offense intended.

now youve got me questioning the size of the cans i buy. I'll have to recheck when i can.

**I stand corrected. Its a 5 ounce can, not a 2 ounce.

Scarlet you and I are a lot alike. I'm a mayo gal and the spouse is a miracle whip guy (agreed, YUCK!) so we, too make separate batches. We should get together so you and I can share and the hubbies can share, lol!

A proper sammich is more than just bread.
I don't even eat sammiches anymore (for the most part) since i'm low carb but when I did you had to have some filling!
Now I'm not talking ridiculous NYC jewish deli pastrami sammiches that are about 6" thick, but at least have something in their to chew besides the dang bread.
A small can or one of those new pouches makes one tuna sammich with mayo, onions, maybe some relish and salt/pepper.
The bigger can I can squeeze two sammiches out of

Bread is one of the worst things you can eat imho, especially bleached flour white bread.
Being "frugal" is killing you.
Throw the tuna salad on a nice bed of greens, some sliced hard boiled egg and some other veggies/nuts and now you've got a healthy protein packed meal with healthy fats! Yum!
Just not as portable.
