I love Pan de Sal-a Filipino salt bread that's a little bit sweet, with a nice crumb and so easy to make. The one thing I don't get is why salt bread, when it's not salty at all? Oh well, don't let the name put you off, it's delicious. I've used this recipe a lot and today I tweaked it just a wee bit, swapping in half white whole-wheat flour for the all-purpose and adding a little oat bran. I also halved the recipe and made 6 larger rolls-- nothing radical, after all why mess (too much) with a good thing.

And to go in this lovely roll? A combo of my Aunt Ruthie's take on tuna salad (she added salted and drained tomatoes) and a bit of influence from the French classic tuna nicoise salad. It's a familiar sandwich with a twist-- just the way I (and I hope you) like it. Here's the recipe: Tuna Salad Sandwich (My Way).
