Food just tastes better when enjoyed with a friend.

And even better when you’re surprised with a drop-in visit.

And then you ask your friend if she’s had lunch?

That’s when I reach into the pantry, grab a can of tuna, and then look around to what garden fresh veggies are ripening on the counter.

There’s something about a tuna sandwich, so tasty and fresh. In our home we call them “tuna melts”, because we usually broil them with delicious cheese on top.

But this time I made a garden fresh, summer treat.

I added a lactose-free sour cream (instead of heavy mayo), salt and pepper, and corn relish with sweet relish.

Oh, boy!

And then I topped with fresh tomatoes and sliced avocado  – can you say “heaven?”  You can’t go wrong with a few shakes of ground pepper, and then served on Dave’s Killer Bread (also our family favorite).

Late summer tuna sandwiches are delicious to serve for drop-in lunches. Add in a bit of girlfriend talk, love and inspiration, and then a hug (it’s always good to catch up with a friend), and send her on her way.

When’s the last time you whipped up a tuna sandwich, and what are your favorite 3 ingredients to add?

Green Valley Organics provided the sour cream, but I was not compensated for this post today. All opinions are my own, simply because we LOVE Green Valley Organics Lactose Free Sour Cream!
