Not your everyday tuna salad! I love tuna salad, but I get bored by the same old taste. I have a Yahoo group and sent out a request for different ways of making tuna salad. I was so surprised by the many responses to my question and how different everyone makes theirs.
The peperoncini and tomato take the boring out of tuna salad ;-)
Mix well and serve on a bed of lettuce or as a sandwich filling.

You can make an easy tuna salad by mixing store bought cole slaw with a can of tuna. (You can get good deals on cole slaw at Smart and Final, too.)

The deli near my office has a killer tuna salad sandwich, tastes fantastic and kills the wallet! So I decided to do some culinary detective work and figure out how to make it at home to help resist the temptation to buy that $6 sandwich. The last ingredient took me forever to figure out!

This is an easy to make recipe, it stretches a can of tuna, and it is delicious.
Crush the crackers into a bowl. Add the tuna, two small scoops of Miracle Whip, onions and relish and mix. Spread on toast or bread and enjoy!

When making tuna fish salad, use a can of the more expensive solid white tuna with a cheaper can of chunk light no one will notice the difference! Of course you always buy when on sale.

How do I make sweet chicken salad and sweet tuna salad?
By Carmen R. from Houston
Miracle whip instead of mayo.
Sweet pickle relish instead of dill pickles for the tuna and add diced apples and/or quartered grapes for the chicken.
Here's a basic chicken salad recipe:
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 cups chopped, cooked chicken meat
1 stalk celery, chopped
And here's a basic tuna salad recipe:
1 (7 ounce) can solid white tuna packed in water, drained
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons dill pickles, chopped
I like Whole Foods' Sonoma Chicken salad, except I use dried cranberries instead of grapes.
I am looking for "Deli Tuna Salad". I know that it has chopped celery, purple grapes and Tuna in it but I don't know what else.

With over 20 years in the food industry I honestly never heard of anyone putting grapes in their tuna. Basically how it is done around here is you drain the tuna and by that I mean put it in a colander and press every bit of moisture out of it until it is dry. A touch of worchestershire,a tiny bit of onion, celery though many places do not use it and mayo and that is it. The "dried" tuna makes a world of difference. I guess then you could add whatever else you desired to it.Some even add a small amount of mustard to it as well.
I've never had tuna salad with grapes in it, but I have had chicken salad with grapes in it. I've heard that dried cranberries are good in chicken salad as well as turkey sala, as well as mandarin oranges & toasted nuts.
You can really put lots of things in tuna salad. I use two cans of tuna, onion, celery, pickles, mayo, and what really makes it, I think, is the garlic powder. Also salt and pepper. Just try it out a couple times, measuring vegetables by eye. Best eaten, I believe, on toasted sandwich with cheese.
