“This is one of my all time FAVORITE sandwiches. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Onions and olives go together well with the mayo in this recipe... YUMMO! The Finger Roll recipe is GREAT around the holidays and for baby and bridal showers, graduations, weddings, parties, and family get togethers. Just omit the lettuce if making the Finger Rolls. Each can of tuna will make 3-4 finger rolls, depending on how full you make them, and how big the rolls are. You can double or triple this recipe, according to how many Finger Rolls you need.
