Combine two all-time favorites—egg salad and tuna salad—for this salty, satisfying sandwich that comes together in 10 minutes flat. And create a filling that’s tailored to your taste by using either sweet or dill pickle relish to season the mixture, along with mayo, flat-leaf parsley, and salt and pepper. In truth, the hard-boiled eggs are optional. But we’re willing to bet, after one bite, this mash-up will become your new go-to for an inexpensive, protein-packed lunch. Even better? The sandwich clocks a mere 171 calories. In other words, have a handful of potato chips on the side.
