I LOVE a good tuna salad sandwich. I usually only make them on weekends since I don't want to be THAT person who stinks up the break room with the smell of fish. But now that we are working from home I have added it back into the weekly repertoire. And imagine my delight when I read the article in the New York Times Magazine that this recipe for a tuna-salad sandwich is Julia Child Approved. Everyone always wanted to cook something complicated and fancy for Julia when she traveled, so "when she got home, she craved simple food and seized what opportunities she had to enjoy it. Although she knew that visitors often expected something posh, even she, a gracious and energetic host, wasn’t likely to make a fancy lunch, so she cleverly turned the tuna sandwich into her midday signature." Here is the link to the Tuna Salad Sandwich - Julia Child Style. It is pretty easy to pull together. It took me ten minutes tops to make mine for lunch the other day, and the recipe makes enough for two people. Or enough to save for lunch the next day. Remember that for Julia, the important ingredients for this sandwich were the tuna (it had to be packed in oil) and the mayo (she preferred Hellmann’s). And she preferred Bay's english muffins. She loved to add on the onions. And with working from home, you don't have to worry about who your breath may offend in the afternoon. So Enjoy!
