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.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cans white albacore tuna in water, drained
  • 1/4 cup celery
  • 2 Tbsp red onion
  • 2 hard boiled eggs, chopped
  • 1/8 tsp dried dill
  • 1/8 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 tsp dill pickle relish
  • spicy season salt & black pepper.
  • 2-3 Tbsp Hellman's Mayonnaise, more if needed
  • 1 small cucumber (about 1/4 cup) finely diced
  • romaine lettuce

Steps:

  1. Using a mixing bowl, flake the canned tuna apart.

  3. Chop celery and onion in a food processor.
  4. Add celery, red onion, eggs, dried dill, Dijon mustard, dill pickle relish and seasonings.
  5. Then add 2-3 heaping tablespoons of "Hellman's' mayonnaise.

  7. After mixing, test taste to see if you need to add more seasoning.
  8. Chill well before serving. You can serve this on wheat toast, cut into four small finger sandwiches (removing the crust), or fill a pita bread pocket with a handful of chopped romaine and then tuna salad.
  9. I like my tuna salad sitting on top of a bed of broken up romaine lettuce. This makes a delicious lunch or dinner.

You can make an easy tuna salad by mixing store bought cole slaw with a can of tuna.

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 a fun twist on a tuna salad, adding some crunch and vibrance. I make a batch at the weekend. It keeps well in the fridge for days, making for quick and easy lunches. I love serving this at my summer parties.

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.

I am looking for a tuna salad recipe? Besides the tuna and mayo, what else is in it?

You can add some cut up celery. If you don't have any celery on hand, add some celery seed which can be bought in the spice section.

I also add a few squirts of yellow mustard which gives the tuna salad a little bit of added flavor.

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

Use sweet pickle relish in both. I use sweet pickle relish (to taste) boiled eggs (about 2) celery seed 1/2 teaspoon, Mayo to pull it all together and salt to taste. Good Luck and enjoy.

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.

A new way to serve tuna or egg salad, is by cutting off the top of a hard roll, "hollowing" it out, and filling it with tuna or egg salad. Add onions, tomatoes, and lettuce and put the top back on. You can add anything else that you like on it.
