What's in your tuna?

I had was craving tuna sandwiches yesterday. Prepared them how I always do but it made me want to drop a post here about what other people put in their tuna.

Most of the ingredients are "to taste" and depend on how crunchy I want it to be.

canned tuna fish (in water for me)
diced yellow onion
diced celery
relish (sometimes dill and sometimes sweet, both are good)
pepper (generous amounts for me)
salt (less salt when using dill relish)
parsley (occasionally when in the mood)

Mines the same except that I use dill and sweet pickles instead of relish.

uck! no relish in mine please.

i like just plain mayo and finely diced celery in the tuna, on either a plain bagel or multigrain toast. my usual from a deli at work is tuna/celery/mayo on an italian sesame hero with lots of raw onions.
occasionally, i'll put pickled hot peppers on it, or frank's red hot sauce.

I sometimes mix these ingredients up depending on how I want it to taste

onion
sometimes celery
lemon pepper or lemon juice and pepper
oregano
a dash of sugar
mayo
sweet relish
boiled egg
sometimes I will crush some fritos on top or put them in with the sandwich

I like the traditional tuna salad with mayo, etc, but sometimes I like tuna on toasted bread, in a sandwich and this is what I put in the tuna.

a little oil (to which I added 1/2 tsp mustard)
chopped garlic
salt
pepper
black olives (when I have some!)

I love this sandwich! Mmmm.

I like pretty much the same as you Mr. Dove except no relish and I add egg - apples and walnuts if I have them. Sometimes a squeeze of lemon or lime brightens up the flavors too.

IcyMist, I posted that I liked fritos, but I also have been known to put baked ruffles. Now that I think about it, I think next time I will try pringles, I bet they would be good also.

Mine is tuna,onions,dill relish,mayo,salt and pepper if I go further I add celery and boiled egg I some times grill them on the george foreman with swiss on dark rye.
I think tuna salad is a really personal taste Im reluctant to eat it at a deli or restaurant
