Tuna with Lemon

I cook lots of things for Neal. He appreciates all of them and likes most of them. This weekend, I called and asked him to make me lunch. I requested a quesadilla or a tuna sandwich. This is what I got---worthy of a blog post! Try it out on your mom and see what she says.
Tuna Sandwich with Lemon
1 can tuna, light albacore packed in water, drained
1/4 cup (approximately) Miracle Whip
2 teaspoons lemon zest
4 slices sourdough bread
1/2 cup fresh spinach and arugula
Mix drained tuna with Miracle Whip and lemon zest. Spread 1/4 of the mixture on each of the slices of bread. Top two slices with half of the greens. Place the remaining slices that are spread with tuna on top of the greens, so the greens are in the middle of the sandwich. 

Hints: You could toast the sourdough lightly if you wanted. You could make this with canned chicken. You can use only arugula or only spinach. You can call Neal if you need a great, healthy lunch!

Thanks Neal! I loved that he loved that I loved his food. When I asked how he thought of this combo, he said "Well, lemon goes with fish right?" Smart man, pays attention, quick learner and an experimenter to boot. Yessiree, that's my son!
