Fresh Tuna Salad


Fresh Tuna Salad
2 lb fresh tuna, steamed well done
1 (16 oz) jar sweet salad cubes, drained
1/2 c finely chopped onions
1/2 c finely chopped celery
1 tsp white pepper
1/2 tsp salt
cup chopped salad olives
1 cups mayonnaise

Flake tuna and mix well with all ingredients. Store in refrigerator up to 7 days.

I still like tuna salad made with the tuna from a packet, but this is really special, party-worthy tuna salad. :)

OMG, SharonT, that just made my mouth go crazy!

As a sushi lover, I wonder how using the tuna raw would work for that. I'm going to have to try it, (using sushi quality tuna of course).

I've never made sushi, but I don't know why it wouldn't work... might not need that much mayo?

>>what are sweet salad cubes?
sweet pickles that are chopped a little larger... makes for a crunchier texture than sweet pickle relish. Mt. Olive brand. Should probably change the recipe to "coarsely chopped sweet pickles." Any combo of sweet and dill pickles and olives and capers...
