Hawaiian Tuna Salad Sandwiches

This past month, my husband and I discovered the ultimate secret to making traveling with our kids easier.  We started traveling with a small backpack cooler of sandwiches in tow!  This makes our family outings easier in so many ways!

In March we took a family vacation to Orlando.  We brought sandwiches on the airplane, which was wonderful because we wouldn’t have had time to eat before our flight.    We packed a backpack of sandwiches when we went to theme parks.  This meant we didn’t wait in long lines for food, we saved a ton of money and when our kids started to meltdown all we had to do was to whip out a sandwich for them.

Over Easter, we drove to Chicago, which is a five-hour car ride.  We just packed sandwiches and ate in the car. We got there so much faster because we didn’t stop to eat.  Plus we didn’t have kids whining for food because we had food!  Did I remember to mention how much money we have saved by packing sandwiches this past month?

One criterion I have for any sandwich is delicious tasting bread.  Which brings me to Pepperidge Farm Farmhouse® Hearty White Bread.  This bread is really tasty and adds the perfect taste to any sandwich.  It is soft and fluffy and had a fresh from the oven taste.

Sandwiches for lunch or dinner are always a hit with my family.  They love grilled cheese, turkey sandwiches, and peanut butter sandwiches too.  However, tuna salad is probably the favorite amongst my kids.  This Hawaiian tuna salad was a big hit with my family.  My kids loved the addition of the pineapple while my favorite part was the macadamia nuts.

This was super easy, and a great way to switch up lunch.  Check out this video I created for you!
