Croissant Tuna Sandwich

On some days when I'm really lazy and needed a 'short' break from cooking, well, just to re-charge, simple meals that does not involve the stove is the answer! What could be more simpler than this? Bakery-bought croissant, a can of tuna, some veggie and we're done! The kids' are happy, I get to re-charge, works both ways!

This simple tuna croissant sandwich is great for lunch. My kids had this with a glass of cold drink, the weather right now is extremely hot!

After mixing the tuna, keep it cold in the refrigerator until needed. I prefer the tuna cold, instead of at room temperature. When spread on warm croissant, it is an absolute delight to eat!

Want to give this a try? Let me know when you do. Enjoy!

Tuna Croissant Sandwich
5 croissants
1 small can (about 200gm) tuna chunks in oil, drained
2-3 tbsp mayonnaise
2-3 tbsp thousand island dressing
1 small onion, finely chopped
salt to taste
black pepper to taste
sliced tomato
sliced cucumber

  1. Drain tuna, discard oil. Lightly mash tuna chunks in medium bowl.
  2. Stir in the chopped onions, mayonnaise, thousand island dressing, salt and black pepper to taste. Cover and keep cool in the refrigerator until needed. It tastes better when eaten cold.
  3. To assemble croissant sandwich : Using a sharp knife, make a slit along the centre of the croissant to make a pocket. Do not cut through both ends. Place a piece of lettuce in the pocket extending over the sides. Place two slices tomatoes on one side and fill the pocket with tuna filling. You can sprinkle more black pepper over the top if you want! Enjoy! Great with a tall glass of cold orange juice!
