A great way to change up your tuna sandwich

Darra's Famous Tuna Waldorf Sandwich Filling
(recipe from, pic from

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon prepared Dijon-style mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon curry powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 (6 ounce) can oil-packed tuna (mine was water packed)
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, cored and diced
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 1 teaspoon sweet pickle relish
  • 4 large croissants
  • 4 leaves lettuce
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, mustard, curry powder, salt and pepper. Add tuna, shallot, apple, walnuts, celery and pickle relish and toss until all ingredients are coated with dressing.
  2. Lightly toast the croissants. Split in half, place a lettuce leaf on the bottom half of the croissant and fill with tuna salad. Top with a slice of Swiss cheese and the top half of the croissant. Serve with a dill pickle and potato chips. 

I haven't had tuna in a while because it's not really that exciting.  Well, this recipe impressed me, and I will make it again.  I didn't even have tuna, shallot, or swiss cheese and the flavor still came out great.  The apple and walnuts (or pecans) added a great flavor along with the subtle curry taste.  Yum!
