I am dying for a good tuna salad sandwich. Unfortunately I can't seem to make anything really hits the spot. I know I've had good ones before. What do you put in your tuna salad??<br><br>
Thanks!

Well I do a quick and easy one when I do it- which isn't often. I just drain the tuna, add a glop of mayo, salt, pepper, I chop dill pickles because that's what I like (usually 2 small ones), add a sprinkle of dill and it's good to go.<br><br>

I don't eat tuna salad very much either, but I find it's especially tasty with tomato slices! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> Finely chopped celery is a great thing to mix in too and gives it a great texture, but I usually just add the mayo.<br><br>
Alegna's idea sounds delicious too!<br><br>
God bless,<br>

I make mine with a little bit of mayo and lots of mustard. Add some relish, finely chopped celery, salt and pepper. Taste and adjust accordingly. (I've also been known to just leave the mayo out all together since I don't like it. Tastes wonderful!)

We do ours a little differently , since I can't *stand* mayonnaise.<br><br>
We mix tuna, onion, celery, capers, olive oil, red wine vinegar, a little dijon mustard, and lots of black pepper.<br><br>
It's good on crackers or bread, with or without cheese.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
We hardly ever eat it, but I do like it this way when I break down and have a little fish.

whenever I state an OR its normally determined by what I have in-house or my desire for healthiness<br><br>
1. miracle whip or mayo or non-fat plain yogurt, lots of pickle relish, mustard (usually brown), celery salt or celery<br>
2. miracle whip or mayo or non-fat plain yogurt, little bit of relish, little mustard, craisins<br>
3. miracle whip or mayo or non-fat plain yogurt, relish, mustard, olives (this is really good on an olive bread).<br><br><br><br>
I prefer to use a hearty bread, a little tuna on each slice, top with cheese, then bake until golden. Then put the 2 halves together to make a sandwich.

I do mine with yogurt, red grapes (or raisins/dried cranberries), green onions, some green apple, a squeeze of lemon and a little curry powder (plus S&P) and it's super yummy & not your Same Old Tuna Salad. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br><br>
(now I'm hungry!)

I can't stand mayo or miracle whip, but I usually use just a little for creaminess, then add some mustard. I live the idea of plain yogurt! I'll definitely use that next time- thanks!

I put apples, green onions, celery, peppers, carrots, etc in it. I put a tiny bit of mayo or other dressing in for some moisture.
