I love tuna melts! That's on the menu for this evening's dinner, since the tuna is already made. I've got some Havarti to use up too, the bread will be toasted rye.

Love tuna salad on Triscuits, too.

Thank you for posting the older DC links, GG. I never would have seen them. Going to browse through them this afternoon.

I add one grated hard boiled per can of drained tuna. It extends the quantity and adds a flavor I enjoy. As for the rest, just mayo and tarragon.

I don't add salt even though I've added the egg. The tuna adds enough salt for me.

Something to do with tuna I think.

for my tuna sammich today, i'm like andy with chunk light for that extra cat food taste (purrrrrr, purrrrr), finely diced celery, and just a little hellman's light mayo.

it must be refrigerated first (i don't like room temp), then served on a crusty sesame hard roll or hero with thinly sliced onion and pickled hot peppers.

Don't eat it often, but when I do it's pretty standard. Tuna, mayo, scallion, finely chopped celery, salt, pepper...

Working in a restaurant for most of my life I may eat lunch at home once a month. Never think about it for supper/dinner.

The standards: tuna (chunk light or solid, depends on what I have on hand), hard-cooked egg (one per can), and Hellman's mayo. Mix-ins: I open the spice cabinet and see what looks good at that moment. Also, might use super-finely minced shallot or thinly sliced scallions, dill, lemon and Colman's mustard, or seasoned salt and pepper, or one of any variation that we've enjoyed.

Tuna albacore or chunk light. Unless it is imported, you can't get tuna in olive oil around here. So always in water, Drain it thoroughly, then add just a small amount of olive oil. Let it sit until the tuna is flavored. Finely diced celery, onion, finely diced Roma tomato, dash of Italian seasoning, S&P, small amount of mayo. If not on a sandwich with lettuce, then stuffed in a scooped out tomato.

I won't touch canned tuna if it is not packed in olive oil. I make my tuna sandwich spread with fine diced onion and celery, hard boiled eggs, mayo and sweet relish.
