Tuna salad sandwich

This is my tuna salad sandwich. Or, more appropriately, half a sandwich.

There's also a version that I now prefer that has pickled jalapeƱo, pickled banana peppers and sriracha: spicy tuna salad .

It's one slice of Barowski's wheat bread, cut in half. My bread is almost always frozen, so I wrap it in plastic and defrost it at room temperature for 1 to 2 hours.

And it's a half can of tuna. Specifically, Wild Planet albacore tuna in water. It's sustainably caught, low in mercury, packed in BPA-free tins, and very delicious. I take the other half of the can, vacuum seal and freeze it. I defrost the vacuum sealed tuna in cold water for 1 to 2 hours.

My tuna salad, starts out fairly normally with tuna, celery and mayonnaise. And I add salt, freshly ground black pepper and cayenne pepper. And, the secret ingredient from  Mom's tuna salad , Kraft Catalina salad dressing. It's a little weird, and it makes the tuna salad pink, but it really is quite tasty.
