Tuna Salad Recipes
I have loved tuna salad sandwiches ever since I was little. I was a very picky eater. One of the few times I was happy when meal time arrived was when Mom made tuna salad.
Tuna fish salad has remained a staple in my easy recipes file. Canned tuna salad recipes are not only easy recipes to make, but also quick and cheap recipes, too. Teamed with a soup and salad, it also makes a very satisfying meal.
The following are a couple of tuna recipes that I use over and over, including my Mom's tuna fish salad (with just a few tweaks- Sorry, Mom). If you want to know how to make tuna salad that tastes good and is very easy to make, you will love this tuna salad how to.
How to Make Tuna Salad Sandwiches
Tuna Salad Ingredients- Serves 6
2 cans of tuna in water, drained well
1/3 medium onion, chopped fine
About 1/2 cup salad dressing, such as Miracle Whip brand (Adjust to your preference)
1/4 cup sweet relish- again, your preference
1-2 hard boiled eggs, chopped fine (optional)
2 tablespoons celery, chopped (optional)
Simply mix all of the tuna salad ingredients together well. Best served cold. Serve on toasted bread for a much better tuna salad sandwich. The eggs are not necessary, but they do add to the flavor and also help make the recipe 'stretch' a little more, if needed. The celery adds a nice crunch to your tuna salad, but also isn't necessary. When I make this easy tuna salad recipe, I just check in the refrigerator for the listed ingredients and make it with whatever I already have on hand.
