The Tuna Supreme spread will tingle your taste buds with all the delicious flavors.
I am a tuna sandwich lover from way back to my childhood. I never would have thought that I would like any tuna sandwich other than the traditional one that I grew up with. This Tuna Supreme Sandwich converted me. This savory, hearty version of tuna salad really livens up the sandwich and leaves me wanting more. I like to make my sandwich extra thick on a nice all grain bread.

- 1/4 cup olive oil, extra-virgin
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 2 1/2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
- 2 green onions, chopped
- 1 1/2 teaspoon capers, rinsed and drained
- 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard powder
