How to make it

  • Peel carrot, cut off top and bottom. Shred carrot on a box grater. Eat the last little nub of carrot so you don't slice your fingers. Cut pickle into 1/4 inch pieces. Pop bread pieces into toaster.
  • Drain tuna by squeezing the opened can top against the contents over the sink.
  • In a medium mixing bowl combine tuna, shredded carrot, pickle pieces, mayo, mustard, and a quick sprinkle of celery salt until well-blended.
  • Put a heaping mound of tuna mixture on one of the toasted bread slices. Spread tuna around in an even layer about 3/4 inch thick. Sprinkle top with celery salt. Apply greens over top and put other slice of bread on top. Voila! Lunch! (When in season, a nice fat slice of a garden fresh heirloom tomato is a nice option too.)
  • Use a fork to eat the tuna off of the plate that fell out when you were eating. I usually eat the rest of the tuna out of the bowl too.

    This sounds really good!!I've never had carrots in my tuna salad but it helps get more veggies in for the day =O) I know this sounds weird, but my sister made me tuna salad once when I was little (yes I loved it then too) and she wanted to make it extra special. She added just a little vanilla!! and now I always do too, it really adds something. Try it sometime =O)

    I made this today for lunch and I was out of pickles and didn't have any celery either. So I sliced up the carrot into 1/8 -1/4 inch slices instead of shredding it and I added a tablespoon of Dijon mustard instead of a teaspoon of yellow. It was a good variation. I liked it that way. Just FYI.

    I also think the carrots make this a bit more unique then the usual mix, can't wait to try it.

    I am co-hosting my daughter's baby shower in 2 weeks and I am planning on making tuna salad sandwiches. This recipe is different with the carrots. I think I may have found the recipe for the tuna salad I will make. Thanks.
