"This is one of my all time FAVORITE sandwiches. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Onions and olives go together well with the mayo in this recipe... Yummo! The Finger Roll recipe is great around the holidays and for baby and bridal showers, graduations, weddings, parties, and family get togethers. Just omit the lettuce if making the Finger Rolls. Each can of tuna will make 3-4 finger rolls, depending on how full you make them, and how big the rolls are. You can double or triple this recipe, according to how many Finger Rolls you need."

We made mini rolls and of course we had to have tuna. This is so far ahead in the flavor department, of any I ever had! Everyone was raving about the rolls! Can't wait to have sandwiches made from this delicious filling!

One heck of a delicious sandwich! I made these with no changes, and it could not have been better or easier. I look forward to enjoying them again and again. Brings tuna sandwiches into a class of their own made this way. Yum!!

Took one bite and this sandwich instantly became a favorite. Took just a few minutes to make the filling and then I let it sit in the fridge to chill. I had my sandwich with chips and pickle chips and had a delightful lunch!

Very tasty! I added a little of the olive juice to the tuna, added celery and a little lemon juice. So delicious! I scooped it up with baked pita pocket crisps.

We had this sandwich for our lunch and I literally licked the bowl clean! I can't believe how much more flavor the tuna has made this way. My husband made me make another batch two days later for a repeat!
