"My husband says this tuna salad is even better than his mother's. Not too pickly tasting, mild with a nice blend of flavor. You can add more mayo for a creamier salad." — Graden

We ate this tuna salad at the Trout Lodge in Missouri. When we asked for the recipe, they gave us a print out from this site! We can't wait to make it at home!
Made this exactly as the recipe said and all I could taste was tuna fish. The next day I added more dill relish, onions, honey mustard and celery and didn't tell my family. After lunch I inquired if it tasted any different than the day before. Everyone said no. Just tuna fish. I was very disappointed in this dish. It seemed like a waste of ingredients for a very bland one note flavor. It would probably taste better without the tuna just the eggs and other favors. Taking this one out of my receptive box
Good tuna salad - I cut it back to one 6 ounce can and used one hard boiled egg. I didn't have honey mustard so I used dijon. To lighten it up I used Hellman's light mayo and added just a little more. I cut back on the onion a bit and added a pinch of garlic powder. I served this on toasted multi-grain bread with lettuce and a thick slice of tomato.
Don't you just hate it when people change the whole recipe and then rate it, I do...but here I am doing it, sorry...I basically combined Barbie's Tuna Salad, on this site, and New Wife Tuna Salad. I used: 5 hard-boiled eggs diced * 7 (6 oz) cans tuna, drained * 1 stalk celery, chopped * 1/2 cup chopped sweet onion * 1/2 cup mayo * 1 TBLS honey mustard * 1/2 tsp black pepper * 1/2 tsp seasoned salt * omitted dill pickle relish and celery seed * ADDED: 3 TBS Parmesan cheese, 1 TBLS dried parsley, 1 tsp dried dill weed and a pinch, or sprinkle, of garlic powder. This was great as an open face sandwich topped with cheese and broiled in the oven just enough to melt cheese. Thanks to both TANAQUIL (author of Barbie's Tuna Salad) and JMOR777 for New Wife Tuna Salad...
I love this recipe. It is actually exactly how I make it except I use actual dill pickles cut up because my whole family loves dill pickles (Clausen). And instead of honey mustard I use plain yellow mustard, but the honey mustard sounds good and I will be trying it that way. Thanks!
We enjoy sitting on our deck overlooking Lake Lanier and eating this wonderful Tuna Salad!Delicious!!! ENJOY!!!!!
Thanks for sharing a great recipe! I did add some garlic powder for personal taste and hubby prefers sweet pickles instead of dill but it still tasted yummy!!! I've added this to my recipe box!
I have never made tuna salad from a recipe before, I always just mixed tuna with mayo and celery. When I saw this recipe it looked so interesting I just had to try it. Wow! It was delicious. My son and husband liked it too. It was very tasty. Thanks!
