Crunchy tuna sandwich with cream cheese and peanuts

Crunchy tuna with peanuts and cream cheese is cool.

A crunchy tuna sandwich is so much better than a soggy one. Use peanuts and celery to make your tuna stand out above the rest. This one is really different. It's rich because it uses Philadelphia cream cheese instead of mayo. There's a heat wave in the Harrisburg area right now, so cool and easy sandwiches that keep the kitchen cool are perfect.

Makes 5 sandwiches

  • 4 oz. Philadelphia whipped cream cheese (1/2 a tub)
  • 2 tablespoons mustard
  • 1 (6 oz.) can tuna, drained
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup chopped peanuts
  • tomato slices
  • lettuce leaves
  • bread or sandwich roll
  1. In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese and mustard. Stir well.
  2. Stir in celery and peanuts.
  3. Drain the tuna. Gently fold the tuna into the cream cheese mixture, so it keeps its chunkiness.
  4. Spread onto toasted bread or sandwich rolls. Add slices of tomato and lettuce.

    This is an unusual mix of ingredients. I would never have thought to combine these for a sandwich.

    This is something I am sure the teenagers will love. No work and all their fun sandwich fixings.

    This sounds like an interesting combination. Peanuts and tuna crunchy sandwich, lots of healthy bites there.

    Guess what Gert's having for lunch today - with reduced peanuts. Peanuts and a 93 year old don't always go together well.
