Had had a regular greens salad for lunch with a chunk of tuna flaked on top with Ginger Dressing...yum, now I'm looking for more and better tuna. What was the brand you guys were getting at TJ's? In a yellow can?

Thanks Kayelle! Now I know what to look for at Amazon. They had all the Trader Joe's tuna. I think I spent an hour looking at tuna

Ykies, I'm sorry you have to pay for Amazon shipping! Too bad TJ's doesn't have online shopping for their products.

Much like mine. Except the egg is optional. My mother always put eggs in hers. It makes it taste to much like egg salad if you add to many. And i know she added them to make it go further too.
If I do use egg, I use only one egg max for a small can.
Usually I forgo the egg.

My mini FP does a great job on the onions and celery. They are chopped so fine that you don't even see them in the tuna. But the flavor is there. And that is what counts for me. I think the light chunky tuna has more taste, but I am the only one who likes it. So I keep one can of albacore on hand all the time in the event one of the kids stops in and is looking for something quick to eat. Otherwise I buy the tuna I like just for myself.

It has never occurred to me to add pickle flavor to tuna. I will try it the next time I buy tuna. I do have relish on hand. But no pickles. I always drink the juice and eat the pickles within two days of buying it. I love pickles. And I love the juice even more.

Addie, sometime try chopping some pimento stuffed green olives with it instead of pickles. I love those Spanish olives, and keep them just for my tuna.

We have Stater Brothers and Albertsons here - that's it, the other chain grocers are 90 miles away. Staters has a good meat selection, I'm happy with it. My daughter shops at Ralphs in Valencia, they have a good selection, too. I do miss our Vons.

Thanks, Kay...I sure hope we get a TJ's here, too.

Huh....funny, I thought the yellowfin cans were all yellow. Either they changed them or I'm mis-remembering.

I'm sure I'll be able to find something that will get me up to free shipping...
