I know exactly what you mean - in the summer, I love a light meal like a sandwich, or even a bowl of cold cereal!

I am used to tuna salad sandwiches where the tuna is mixed with mayonnaise and seasonings and then used in a sandwich. What a fresh alternative, to add everything to the sandwich separately. I love it!
