This Tuna Salad & Tomato Sandwich Has 33 Grams of Protein

This classic deli-style tuna sandwich is packed with protein and topped with a juicy slice of fresh tomato.  

This recipe makes one sandwich, but you can easily double or quadruple the recipe to make more.  

Sweet pickle relish adds a contrast of flavors to the mix, but if you prefer something less sweet, dill pickle relish can be used in its place.
