Cheap tuna in water, a dab of mayo, onions, celery or celery seed, black pepper and some chopped red bell pepper if I have it.

These days, with the size of the cans shrinking, my tuna salad is more like a crunchy vegetable salad.

I am a simple man.
I prefer solid tuna and mayo. That's it.

Here is a video made by David Rosengarten on the tuna salad sandwich.
Now, I will not comment on Mr. Rosengarten choice of mayo..to each his own, I reckon.
I will say that I have always been a fan of Mr. Rosengarten from way back in the early days of the Food Network when he hosted a show called simply "Taste."

I like David also. I remember when he had his two little girls on and they were sitting on a sheet on the floor with huge bibs on, eating pomegranates. They were covered in red and just having a ball. All the time they were eating, David was showing how to open one and get the seeds out. The problem, the camera kept cutting to the girls. They were more fun to watch. He finally gave up and sat down with them and started to dig in with them.

Hoot, I feel like I was a peeping tom watching his tuna-gasm.

I see nothing wrong with his choice of mayonnaise.

For me, I prefer Caines. (a local brand) I also used to love their potato chips. You could count of finding a few burnt ones. When they were in Cambridge, I went there once and got a five pound can for a birthday party. We were eating chips for months. And it was so worth it!

When I was apprenticing at a corporate catering business I was put on the sandwich station for awhile. This was one of the busiest jobs because a lot of our business was for lunches. My boss was very particular about her tuna salad mixture. It couldn't be too wet or dry - just the right amount of mayo. We made huge batches every day and you had to get it just right.

She added onion, salt, pepper, lemon juice, mustard, hot sauce and Worcestershire to it. Then it was layered with lettuce, tomato, pickles and more S&P. To be honest I thought this took away from the tuna but it was a popular sandwich.

When I make tuna salad for TB, I add some of his eggless soy free mayo (tastes surprisingly good), green onion and dill (fresh when I can). Oh and a little salt and pepper just because he likes it that way.

When we were eating regular mayo I usually tried to make my own. It doesn't last long but is oh so good.

I guess I've never put the two together. I've never eaten Ramen noodles, nor have I ever been a fan of boxed dinners. So those weren't foods I ate in college. However, even at this stage in my life where I make a decent salary, I still enjoy canned tuna now and again.

Of course I'm much fussier now, and the upscale stuff I buy these days is $5.99 a can (being sustainable, green, earth friendly, dolphin safe, swimming in omega-3s and all that rigamarole), so to make up a decent sized batch of Tuna Salad is probably somewhere around the $14-16 price range when all is said and done. Not exactly cheap food. But I will admit it tastes better than the chicken-of-the-sea bargain cans I used to buy.
