You're not alone Lynan. I can't stand water-packed tuna - regardless of the brand. In my opinon, it's impossible to doctor it up to where it doesn't have the texture of straw. Give me vegetable-oil packed, or best of all, good-quality Italian olive-oil packed - but of course the pricey Italian-packed is never used for plain old mayo tuna salad - lol!!!

I use water packed tuna, add chopped red onion, chopped apple, celery and enough mayo to moisten.

My preferred method:
Tuna well drained, Best Foods Mayo (which I can't get on the East coast and Hellman's just isn't the same), chopped black olives, red onions, chopped saurkraut, chopped dill pickles, finely diced apple, chopped banana peppers, pepper (I find that there's enough flavor and no need for salt) all served up on grilled sourdough with some Edam cheese. YUM!!!! Now I'm hungry!!!
I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

What about y'all?
Since I'm a tuna lover, another take on tuna salad I like is a tuna waldorf salad. I don't follow a recipe, but go by feel/eye - Add chopped apple, raisins or dates, chopped walnuts, mayo, a pinch of cinnamin, a splash of lemon juice, & diced celery or green onions/scallions. Mix it all up & place on a bed of greens and surround with grapes. Another way I like tuna salad is served stuffed in a tomato. Recently posted a recipe for *Monster Muenster Tuna Melt. Mix chopped artichoke hearts into the tuna mix. Very tasty. Lemon Pepper seasoning adds a little zing to the same old same old.

I use white tuna packed in water, chopped apples, onions, celery and sometimes pecans, but usually not. Add just enough mayo and lemon juice to mix well.
