    Title: Tuna-Salad Sandwich, Julia Child Style
    Categories: Seafood, Vegetables, Sauces, Breads
    Yield: 2 servings

    MMMMM-------------------------TUNA SALAD------------------------------
    5 oz Can tuna packed in oil;
    - drained
    4 tb Mayonnaise; preferably
    - Hellmann’s, more for
    - spreading
    3 tb Fine chopped celery
    3 tb Fine chopped onion
    4 Cornichons; fine chopped
    1 tb Capers; rinsed, patted dry,
    - chopped if large
    5 Olives; pitted, chopped
    Fresh lemon juice
    Salt & ground white pepper
    2 tb Minced fresh chives or
    - parsley (opt)

    2 Toasted English muffins
    4 sl Untoasted white bread
    4 Soft lettuce leaves
    4 sl Tomato slices
    4 sl (thin) onion (opt)

    PREPARE THE TUNA SALAD: Using a fork, mash the tuna with
    3 tablespoons mayonnaise. Add the celery, as much onion
    and chopped cornichons as you’d like, and the capers or
    olives, and toss to combine. Add a squirt of lemon
    juice, some salt (go easy at first) and pepper. Taste
    and see if you'd like more mayo, onion or cornichons.
    Add more lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste. Stir in
    the chives or parsley, if you’re using either. (Makes 1
    1/2 cups.) The tuna salad is good to go as soon as it’s
    made, but it’s even better after a couple of hours in
    the fridge.

    When you’re ready to serve, spread the muffins or bread
    with a little mayonnaise. If you’re using English
    muffins, do what Julia did: Make open-face sandwiches.
    Put a leaf of lettuce on each muffin half, top with tuna
    salad and finish with tomato and onion. If you’re using
    sliced bread, prepare traditional sandwiches: Top each
    of 2 slices of bread with 1 piece lettuce, tomato and
    onion, then spread over the tuna and finish with
    remaining onion, tomato, lettuce and bread.
