A Fresh Take On a Fresh Sandwich

These aren’t your typical sandwiches – they don’t use any bread! Instead, they’re capped with a crisp SweeTango® apple. These blushing red apples are some of the tastiest apples available. A hint of citrus, honey, and spice give them a balance of flavor that makes this unexpected sandwich combo work. They’re also perfect for baking or simply snacking out of hand. And with a remarkably loud and satisfying crunch, they’re sure to be your new favorite apple variety! Pick up some SweeTango® apples in your local produce section from mid-August or early September through November or early December.

Tasty and nutritious filling

There’s more to these sandwiches than just delicious flavor, though. Each SweeTango® Tuna Sandwich is packed to the gills with nutrition. They aren’t just hearty, they’re heart-healthy! Both tuna and apples promote good heart health and boost the immune system. Tuna has a low fat content while apples contain no fat or cholesterol. These and other nutritious ingredients like Greek yogurt and celery make this a guilt-free dish! Feel good about what you’re eating or serving for lunch with a SweeTango® Tuna Sandwich.
