Snip's Tangy Tuna Salad

This makes a lovely light supper dish or lunch.

2 cans of tuna chunks drained
1 large tomato chopped
1 small onion finely diced
3/4 of cup of mayonnaise
1 tbsp of light brown sugar
2 tbsps of white grape vinegar
2 chopped pickled jalapeno's
salt and cracked black pepper to taste

Mix all of the above ingredients well and serve with toasted baguettes and crisp lettuce.

I especially like the jalapeno part...
Do you think it's possible to avoid putting the sugar in, Odette? I can't stand mixing sweet and savory tastes, I'm a barbarian, I know it.

Ciao

Thanks And welcome back!

You can leave out the sugar but then I would suggest you use lemon juice instead of vinegar or use only half the amount of vinegar.
I just like the tang that you get from vinegar.
You could also use balsamic vinegar but it turns the salad a weird colour.
The sugar doesn't actually make it sweet, just balances out the flavour.

How is your tuna packed, water or oil? I hate tuna in water, but oil packed is getting harder to find here.

We have tuna packed in sunflower, olive oil or springwater.

I use tuna in olive oil. The tuna in water is too dry. Yuck!

It won't be hard to jazz it up with the missing ingredients from this recipe though.

I think there may actually be a compliment somewhere in this post
Thanks Pac
Think you will like this one, I've kinda learned a bit about your taste since joining DC.

Compliment?! I was letting you know that you should have posted this yesterday morning!

I'm glad now I didn't add those capers yesterday.
What would be a good sub for grape vinegar, or is that what I call wine vinegar?

I'll try harder to keep up with your cooking schedule!

Wine vinegar is fine. Just don't use spirit vinegar (that fake junk)

White natural (regular) vinegar is usually made from grapes. This would be what we call grape vinegar.

I use this...

Ok, I'll try it with sugar, I'm following your advice.
