Tuna Salad Sandwich...ingredients.

Since we've discussed deviled eggs at length...what do you use in your tuna salad sandwiches?

I'm making lunch with two cans of Albacore tuna, three chopped hard cooked eggs, chopped celery and two green onions, five pimento stuffed green olives chopped.
Mayo, Dijon mustard, a dab if anchovy paste, a squeeze of fresh lemon, salt and lots of fresh ground pepper.

What's your secret?

One can of chunk light tuna (I like the more pronounced flavor), Hellmann's mayonnaise, minced scallions, salt and pepper. Spread onto toasted scali bread and enjoy.

Tuna Salad Sandwich...ingredients.

Packet of chunk light tuna in sunflower oil (usually Starkist), sweet pickle relish, Hellmann's low fat mayo, lots of chopped celery, maybe some chopped green onion, fresh ground black pepper. Very nice served with Triscuit.

Funny, I just made tuna salad an hour ago.

I used two cans of albacore in olive oil because that's what I had, mixed in some Best Foods mayo, chopped cucumber, green onions, celery, and a hard cooked egg. If my daughter and grandson are here, I add pickle relish because they like it so much in tuna salad, I can go either way.

Tuna salad is one of those things I make differently every time, depending on what veggies I have. Always Best Foods mayo, chopped celery, and chopped egg, though. The kind of tuna doesn't really matter to me, I like them all.

I picked up this method from Cooks Illustrated: 2 cans of albacore tuna in water, drained, flaked and spread out into a medium bowl. Sprinkle tuna with seasonings so that all of it is evenly seasoned. I use salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, 2 stalks of small-diced celery, about 2 tbsp. small-diced dill pickles, and 1-2 tsp. fresh lemon juice. Mix that together, add mayonnaise, mix again.

A couple old threads on the subject:

I love it with Triscuits, too. If I have it, I put a piece of cheese, something mild like Havarti, on the Triscuits and tuna salad on top. One night last week when DH was out of town, I made tuna melts on toasted ciabatta bread for dinner.

When I made tuna salad sandwiches, I used the solid pack, chopped celery, mayo, dab of mustard mix & spread on bread add lettuce and pack for lunch. Have not had a tuna sandwich since we quit carrying lunches while working and going to school. In several decades the desire for a tuna sandwich has not returned.

Thanks for leaving those old links GG. It was nice to hear Kades sweet voice again. I'm going to add some curry powder to my next mixture.

I like Wild Planet tuna but, other than that, this is pretty much the same recipe I use.

Oh, I stopped eating canned tuna when I earned my M.A. But, we used to make it with

Mayo, celery, hamburger relish, onion, S&P, a dash of soy sauce, and some lemon zest.
