This is the best homeade tuna salad recipe i've ever had. It's a must try for any tuna salad fan. You can make varaitions on it to fit your taste. To save time you can omit the boiled egg without losing anything in the flavor department. I also suggest a half cup of onion, instead of a 3/4.
This was just WAY too much trouble for something that should be quick and easy. Although the taste was interesting, it isn't something that would make me want to try it again, or serve it to guests. The taste just wasn't worth the time and trouble.
This recipe is perfect! I doubt I will use any other for tuna salad. I substituted slightly to make it low fat: using 4 hard boiled egg whites, fat-free Miracle Whip, and fat-free sour cream. Everything else I followed exactly and served it on toasted English muffins with sliced tomatoes and a sprinkle of lemon pepper. Fantastic!
My family absolutely loves this recipe. I've made this many times. My teenager says she doesn't like tuna salad but she loves this. I had been searching for something more interesting than the normal tuna salad and this is it!!! I'll make this everytime instead of that boring stuff. Thanks.
I loved this tuna salad. I've been looking for quite a while for some tricks to make my tuna salad more like those that restaurants serve and less like me just opening a can and adding ingredients at random. This did the trick! I omitted the crab meat (because I don't eat crab) and used dill pickle juice (instead of the relish as I didn't have any). I used freshly grated pepper instead of lemon pepper. It was excellent. I scarfed it down immediately.
This is a superb tuna salad that I wouldn't hesitate to serve at buffet or light lunch with Martha Stewart -- or even the President, for that matter. I have always put sweet relish, mayo, and hard boiled egg in my own tuna salad, but this one is so creamy-spreadable and so palate pleasing, I plan on passing the recipe on to friends. Ordinarily, a "mere" tuna salad would not merit that attention, but this version is a classic and a keeper.
Update: The flavors seemd to "marry" overnight & this was much better this morning! Had for brunch on a toasted English muffin. If I make again, I won't add the mustard, or prehaps use Dijon. Original review: The mustard in this tasted weird to me. I couldn't taste the crab (I have always thought when using crab, keep the ingredients simple so that you taste the sweetness of the crab meat). Also, two types of pickle relish plus the addition of dill weed is overkill. Sorry, didn't really like this one. ):
Needed to make something in a hurry for an afternoon picnic - and had most of the ingredients except substituted dill pickle relish with a few pickle slices diced up - grated a tsp of lemon rind instead of using lemon pepper - used 1/2 cup of green onions - and 1 tsp of dry dijon mustard. Am saving this one in my recipe file. Excellent!!!
