That's my basic & quick Tuna sammie.

Sometimes diced onions and or celery find there way in and if I'm feeling really adventurous I'll pop it in the toaster oven with some cheese for a tuna melt.

Oil or water packed I don't find that big a difference.

I do want solid white Albacore for a sandwich. To me Chunk Light is closer to cat food and I use it in tuna casseroles but not for Tuna Salads.

Lucy & Ethel like both and are really happy whenever I open a can of either one.

I don't think they are really cats. I'm beginning to think they are actually 's in 's disguises.
Do they respond to the sound of the electric can opener? My sister would never see her cat except when you ran the can opener. If he didn't smell the cat food or tuna when the lid came off, he would go into hiding again.

I don't have an electric can opener, but my cats sure know the sound of a manual can opener. All it takes is breaking the seal on the lid.

I wish they would put flip-top lids on tuna cans like they do on cat food cans. It's so much easier.

I've seen them too, I think on the single-serve cans folks take to work for lunch. I always get the tuna in a pouch, really convenient.

I am not too fond of those seasoned single serving pouches. I have tried a few and they don't use the same seasonings I prefer. Sometimes I will open a single serving can and season it with just salt. Eat it right out of the can.

Update...

I just made tuna salad sandwiches with Trader Joe's oil packed Yellow Fin Tuna for the first time, and it's a real winner!

The flavor puts Albacore to shame, and I thought it was good before now. I'm sold, and I'll never use any other kind of canned tuna again.

Thanks for the tip Cheryl, TJ's does it once again!

I'm glad you liked it, Kay! You reminded me that I'm out, I just added it to my list. I also love it drained and mixed in a pasta salad.
