I'm looking for a really good tuna salad recipe that I can pack in my teen daughter's lunch, but one without curry (she really doesn't like it...sigh...so young and foolish). Does anyone have a good all -purpose tuna salad recipe? With mayo please, I don't have MW or that type of dressing in my pantry.

Thanks!

I have made friends with the fishmonger at my meat market. When I ask him to, he gathers up all the little pieces of tuna he has trimmed off a tuna steak. He marks them at $.49 cents a pound. The difference between sauteed tuna and tuna in a can just cannot be described. Friday is my best day to get them. The store is in an Italian community.

You can make the recipe I post but without the curry I'm sure it should work for your daughters. Mine loved it during the school years and still do. I don't add hard cooked eggs to my tuna and we all insist on imported oil packed tuna the flavor is so much nicer. . Give it a try adding and subing things she likes and won't touch.

Ellen, how about mixing up several cans of oil packed tuna, Dijon mustard about a teas. if your daughter likes anchovies you can mash 2 fillets and add that 2 tab. Raisins,mayo about 2 Tab or enough to make the filling hold together, parsley,finely chopped celery 2 of the insice stal;ks, her choice of toasted and chopped nuts abouit 1/4 cup. This is nice in summer when we can get fresh sweet tomatoes. You could ad a hard cooked egg sieved over the top of the sandwich. Nice stuffed into a pita too.

I like tuna in the pouch with sunflower oil, undrained. Mix with Helman's low fat mayo, some sweet relish, chopped green onion, chopped celery, and lots of fresh ground black pepper. No measures, just wing it to taste. Sliced grapes are nice in it too. Really good with Triscuit crackers. You could add some toasted nuts if you'd like.

Very basic, but we really like it!
