California Tuna by way of 260 Madison, NYC

I was reminded of this way to make tuna and it's so good.  My husband used to work at 260 Madison in New York.  Seems every building in NYC has its own deli....I don't think anyone ever knows the name of their deli, but they sure do know what to order.  This was a favorite especially in the summer and it's appropriately named California Tuna.  

                                                         2 packets of albacore white tuna
                                                         1 medium carrot, grated fine
                                                         1 hard boiled egg, chopped
                                                         1 tsp relish
                                                          1 tsp chopped fresh chives
                                                         1 tbsp mayo
                                            Mix together and spread on your favorite bread. 

We started our holiday weekend a little early and walked down to the bluff to watch the waves as we ate our CA Tuna sandwiches.  Have a wonderful weekend!
