Recipes- Tuna Mandarin Croissants

Here's just a simple update to a tuna sandwich for your lunch or next brunch event. I served this at potlucks cut into 1/2 or 1/3 pieces and just made it the other week during a week-long-scrap with the girls
Make sandwiches just as you would for regular tuna-fish sandwiches except substitute Mandarin oranges for the pickles. The amount you make depends on the number of sandwiches you are making. Sorry that this photo doesn't do justice to the sandwich- it is really good!
Tuna Mandarin Croissants
1 Small can of Mandarin Oranges- drained
1 Can tuna fish packed in water
Best Foods Mayonnaise
Salt and Pepper to taste (last time I didn't put in enough so make sure to do a taste test!)
Large croissants (I prefer the Costco ones)
Mix the tuna with small amounts of mayo until you get the consistency you want (less runny, the better since the oranges will add a little bit of their own juice). Carefully fold in the oranges and then salt/pepper to taste. Slice the croissants lengthwise (you can lightly toast if you want) and then place the mix inside.  For the day of this photo, I served it with grapes and THE.BEST. pickled asparagus from McSweet. Look for them on their website or on Facebook. I love their entire line!
