    Tuna Salad

    As a savor this dilectible conction of tuna, onion, relish and mayo this morning, I thought about how I prefer dill relish to sweet relish. And it has to be real mayo not Miracle whip thigh enlarger. And no diet stuff. Sometimes with boiled egg.

    Anyway, choose your preferred relish and creamy binder.

    I don't like tuna or pickles in any form. And only real mayo for me (Best Foods known as Hellmann's east of the Rockies), on just about anything.

    Keep the relish and onions out!!! Its funny, i like them both, just not in my tuna salad. I'll vote for real mayo and boiled eggs though.

    Huge debate at the house here. I prefer sweet relish and egg in mine. The wife goes with dill and no egg. The only thing we agree on is real mayo. Needless to say when tuna salad is made, only one of us is eating.

    OK, ya made this Bear "hungrier than the average Bear.....". I haven't had tuna salad in a long time. This week I will. Yum.

    This morning's local Sunday paper had a recipe for salmon burgers that looked really good. Normally, I cook salmon on the grill. The recipe for burgers is calling me. Double yum.

    I've been trying to find a recipe for tuna salad! I love the stuff. I know it's pretty simple but I don't quite know what all the ingreds are. The tuna salad I buy from a nearby cafe has penne pasta, tuna and finely chopped red onion, capsicum and tomato -but the dressing is a mystery to me! So a mixture of relish and mayo is the way to go, huh?

    I can't tolerate mayo in any form. It's plain tuna for me, maybe with a little dolphin and murcury mixed in. Mmmmm....

    I can't stand mayo but will eat tuna fish and chicken salads made with it as long as it does not taste creamy. I will add anything from grapes, relish, carrots, onions, walnuts, apples, raisins, and other tasty treats. It just depends on what I have in the house. There is a place in my town that makes their creamy salads with sour cream instead of mayo and it is so good!

    It's not tuna salad without mayo and sweet relish. Definitely on rye too. It's a package deal, got to have all 3 of those ingredients in my opinion

    Mayo and sweet relish. Also, celery occasionally.

    And it has to be on lightly toasted white bread for me.

    Allergic to all forms of seafood. If it tastes just like chicken as they say....I'll just have chicken instead.

    Only mayo and only hellmans for me.

    I'll add another bread choice, light rye with carraway seeds.

    Miracle Whip and celery salt. Lots of celery salt.

    I wholeheartedly agree. Mayo has to be one of the most disgusting things ever invented. I mean, who actually thought that egg whites and vinegar would taste good on anything. yeeech...

    The best non-mayo tuna salad that I've had is made with feta cheese, kalamata olives, grape tomatoes, red onion, olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Good stuff.

    Miracle Whip ugggg!

    I like sweet relish, non-fat mayo, and solid albacore... In fact, I may have to whip some up for lunches this week and quit going out with the guys, save some $$.

    I'm hungry now too. Time to hunt down a maple glazed donut.

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone

    I view making tuna salad as an art form. First of all, I only use chunk light, as albacore has a funky aluminum taste to me. If I am not on a diet, I use Italian tuna in olive oil (simply the best). Otherwise, I use chunk light in spring water. Trader Joe's is the best!

    My steps are the following:
    1. Open can.
    2. Put tuna in fine colander.
    3. Rinse with cold water.
    4. Wrap tuna with several layers of paper towel.
    5. Squeeze with all your might until ALL water is removed.
    6. Dump into large bowl.
    7. Break apart with hands until all tuna is completely flaked.
    8. Add mayonaise, lots of chopped red onion, black pepper and salt (sometimes chopped celery).
    9. Mix thoroughly.
    10. Eat.

    Italian tuna can be eaten right out of the can. Mmmmmmmm.
