Tuna Crunch Sandwiches Recipe - NYT Cooking

A tuna salad and potato chips sandwich might not be as classic a combination as peanut butter and jelly, but it’s, anecdotally, many high school students’ first attempt at experimenting with flavors and textures, and no less delicious. In addition to being crunchy, chips also add stability to the sandwich, keeping the tuna salad in place while you eat. There’s no wrong way to make the sandwich, but seasoning tuna salad with red onion and celery, lots of olive oil and little lemon juice, and using kettle-style salt and vinegar chips are especially appealing. There’s the word “optional” next to the most optional ingredients, but consider every ingredient except the tuna, bread, and fries customizable to your liking (or how your mom made it).
