Tuna Sandwich with Green Olives

IMG_20170509_123703A pastime that my husband and I share is binge watching fail videos on YouTube. I don’t know about my husband, but each time we laugh at another person’s misfortune I secretly say a little prayer that I don’t end up in one of those videos. Alas, I keep on watching and laughing.

One particularly memorable fail was on Wheel of Fortune when a contestant, hesitant yet convinced that he had the correct answer, blurted out a very bizarre phrase. I found the contestant’s heartfelt conviction of his answer especially hilarious. I shed tears from laughing so hard. It’s now a phrase that my husband and I spontaneously blurt out to each other for kicks.

This textured and flavorful tuna sandwich with its salty olives and mildly sweet bell peppers is for that Wheel of (mis) Fortune contestant. Props to him for believing wholeheartedly that “fish love” is really a thing. Accordingly, this sandwich dish is called, “Fish Love.”

Watch the video:
