In Germany we actually are not eating the sandwiches as it is common in America. The German way is to take a slice of bread and add whatever you like on top. In some regions of Germany they would call it a "Stulle", or "Butterbrot", or "belegtes Brot". You would not add another slice of bread on top of it. It is like the Danish way to decorate their bread. But I will call it "sandwich" so we are all on the same page. It is a great snack and much better than fast food.

Ingredients (for 2 people)
1 small-medium can white tuna (in water)
2 tbsp mayonnaise
1tsp Dijon mustard
2-3 pickles (I prefer French cornichons or small cucumbers from Hengstenberg)
1-2 green onions
2 leaves lettuce
pepper, salt, hint of nutmeg
1tbsp olive oil and 1tsp white wine vinegar
1 hard boiled egg
1-2 tomatoes or 1-2 red radishes
2 slices of German rye or wheat bread

Cooking instructions
- Chop pickles in small cubes; cut green onion in small slices; wash lettuce and dry them on  a paper towel
- Mix tuna in a bowl with mayonnaise, mustard, pickles, salt, pepper, oil and vinegar
- Spread some butter on a slice of bread, put lettuce leave on top
- Spread the tuna mix evenly over the whole slice
- Peel the egg and cut it in thin slices (use an egg slicer if you have one, cuts them really thin)
- Cut tomato or radishes in thin slices (use firm tomatoes)
- Add eggs and tomatoes on top and decorate with some parsley or chives.
