"This is my Mom's recipe for tuna salad which happens to contain no mayonnaise. Being Catholic, we had it every Friday night for dinner." — CCOVEY

1 1/2 cups
bread and butter pickles
2 (6 ounce) cans
ground black pepper
sweet pickle juice
This was pretty good, a basic tuna salad. I added a little table spice blend to give it some zing. To the reviewer who was disappointed because this recipe was missing the mayo: The whole point of the recipe is that it does not contain mayo, it's even in the title of the recipe.
Ok, this was missing something MAYO. Seriously this needs some kind of "glue" to hold it together.
I had this for lunch today only I modified it a little bit. Instead of bread and butter pickles I used Mt.Olive Dill Salad Cubes and omitted the salt. It was very good on whole wheat bread. I will be making this often.
This was a great, easy, healthy recipe! I just made one serving for lunch and it was filling and satisfied all of my cravings. It would have been just as easy to make the entire salad and feed a family. I loved it!
Put it on a bed of spinach and eat as a "salad" (hence the name of this thing) if you have a hard time keeping the ingredients together. If you're goal is eating healthier you could skip the bread anyhow.
I think this is a great, healthy alternative to the fat-laden mayo versions, especially since I don't care for the low-fat or fat-free varieties. I sometimes add lemon pepper and green onion, just for added flavor. For more crunch, I sometimes add chopped celery.
very good! I added some onion for extra flavor. Will make it again.
I thought this was lacking a bit of flavor, so I added more chopped pickle and mustard. i did not have any problem with not having a binder bc I accidently processed the egg and pickle a bit too long, which gave me a weird mix that was kinda chunky but not really, and had some liquid to bind. I might try this again with less eggs--it seemed like too many eggs. Of course, couldve been my fault since I processed so long. Thanks for the recipe!
