1 (6 ounce) can
tuna packed in oil, drained
salt and ground black pepper to taste
This is so simple! Be sure not to but too much onion in!! I did and ended up picking all I could out to prevent MAJOR heartburn! :)
Not bad, but definitely needs some spicing up. However, a glance at the recipe should tell you this. There is no reason you can't add some italian seasoning, tomatoes, and pickles, which is what I did. I also chopped up the last few hearts of palm I had in the jar to add to this salad. Served at a bbq today and several people commented that it was good. Thanks for the recipe!
Simple but satisfying, serve with a nice green salad for nigh on summer lunch perfection! I find light mayonnaise is just as good as full fat for this..and better for you ;)
This is an awesome lunch!!! Love this tuna salad.
WOW! When I posted this I definitely thought it was private, I'm glad everybody likes this!! I can't figure out how to edit this, so I'll say this: 2 tablespoons = two heaps of the big spoon in your silverware drawer. Add salt & pepper (or garlic powder or greek seasoning) to taste. I am an onion fiend, that's why it calls for so much onion. :D
This was a simple yet tasy recipe! Great for a quick lunch (and leftovers the next day). I took another users tip and left out some of the onion; I added some diced black olives, celery salt and salt and pepper to taste! I think it would have been a little bland without the celery salt and pepper...but overall a good recipe! I'll definetley make it again.
This is kind of boring. The 2 tablespoons of Mayo is not enough. I close to doubled that and threw in some salt and pepper just for some extra flavor. It was very easy however!
This is a very simple, staple type recipe. I used tuna in water instead of oil to save calories but added more mayo (at least it was a lower cal version)! I decided to add some celery salt since I always add it to chicken or tuna salad, and it gave this recipe a little more pizazz. It definitely tastes better the second and third day..this recipe is a keeper!
