Aloha Tuna Sandwich
What makes the tuna spread special? The usual dry tuna sandwich spread turned Hawaiian!
I bet you've guessed that it has pineapple bits.
Mix ingredients in a bowl:
1 can of tuna in vegetable oil, medium
1/4 cup of grated cheddar cheese
1/8 cup of diced celery, about 3 9- inch celery strips, the green part only
1/2 cup of crushed pineapple, here, since what I have in my cupboard is a can of pineapple tidbits, I diced it really small
1/2 to 3/4 cup of mayo (Miracle whip is the best to use)
pinches of salt, pepper and curry powder (optional)
Once everything is mixed up, you can use a portion to spread on your breads.
I make jars of this in advance so anytime we would have guests or just want to have a different snack, I just get some out the refrigerator. I sometimes add with diced nuts, or raisins or parmesan cheese. You can go wild and add chopped jalapeno or green pepper.
More Variations: You can replace tuna with chicken, ham or bacon. or if you don't have these cheese will do...Yum Yum!
