We made this sandwich up when we had a small deli way back when. One of our salads in the deli case was a spicy tuna salad and another was the honey sesame slaw. It just so happened one day both were in the deli case and one of my employees put the two together and it was amazing! Here I have added heirloom tomatoes because---well because they are in season here in Northern California and I cannot get enough of them! —Dara

Combine shredded cabbage, carrot and cilantro (optional).
