Feeding the kids in the summer is a little easier than packing all those lunchboxes. This summer, I’ve put a different child in charge of choosing and preparing lunch each weekday. My son (10 years old) likes to make these Parmesan Tuna Sandwiches because the prep is easy (just a can opener), and they’re a zesty take on an old standby. What a great way to liven up the a lunch sandwich rut! If you don’t have fresh basil (love that summer garden!), just used the dried spice.
- 2 cans tuna in water, drained and chunked
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 6 Tbsp Parmesan cheese
- 2 Tbsp chopped fresh basil (or 2 tsp dried)
- 2 tsp lemon juice
- salt and pepper
- Bread/rolls of choice
- In a bowl, stir together tuna, mayonnaise, cheese, basil, and lemon juice. Add salt and pepper to taste.
- Serve on sandwich bread or roll.
This recipe makes 4 regular sandwiches or 2 giant ones (the way my son and husband like to eat it). I had mine on boring whole wheat bread, but this Parmesan Tuna would also be great in a pita bread or on top of a green salad.
