    Fresh and simple

    In the past, I've made tuna sandwiches with mayo and/or Miracle Whip. Not anymore... This way is a whole lot better! Ridiculously easy to make. The vinegar gives it a nice tangy flavor. I was hesitant about using it, but I'm glad I did! The consistency looked like mush, which raised an eyebrow, so I added a small handful of chopped walnuts for crunch. Also, not a fan of ciabatta bread, so I used sourdough instead. Will definitely make again.

    So quick and light!

    So easy and versatile. We felt the vinegar was a little tart, so I omitted it completely. Added salt, pepper and oregano to the olive oil before mashing the beans, then mixed with canned chicken instead of tuna. (That was all I had in the cabinet!) Served with fruit, cucumber slices and/or pretzels, this also travels very well. Excellent recipe for the picky ones who refuse to touch mayo!
