Spicy Tuna Pita Sandwich

I can’t quite put my finger on why tuna sandwiches seem to be associated with summertime meals, but honestly I can go for a good tuna mix during Winter, Spring or Fall.

My mother would make a big batch of tuna fish and we would have that for lunch for days and never once complained. Once I realized tuna had a fair amount of protein it gave me even more of a green light to eat it as often as I could.

Making the tuna mix

Today I bring to you my spin on the tuna fish sandwich I grew up eating (with an added kick) called the Spicy Tuna Pita Sandwich. Starkist Selects E.V.O.O. tuna provided me with a variety of tuna options so I decided to go with the Yellowfin Tuna in Extra Virgin Olive Oil with Sun-dried Tomato for this sandwich.

The combination of mayo, yellow mustard and boiled egg whites make this dish delicious and the French Dijon mustard and horseradish give this meal a little kick. This is a great lunch or dinner option for the entire family to enjoy any day of the week.
