Tuna Salad

Creamy tuna salad on whole wheat toast. A delicious summertime lunch!

If you are a tuna salad fan, like myself, then you will LOVE today’s recipe. I grew up eating tuna salad and I always liked it. I would scrunch my nose at first but then would always like the taste once I started eating it.

I’m the only one eating tuna salad around here. My husband hates it so I basically make a batch and know what my lunch will be for the week. Easy peasy!

I must admit that I don’t like ALL tuna salad. Often times I will ask to sample the tuna or chicken salad at a restaurant before I order an entire sandwich. There have been plenty of times that I have decided against ordering a sandwich and it’s often because there is too much crunch. Did I mention I am picky about tuna salad? I like for there to be a lot of “stuff” going on, but I don’t want to bite into each individual ingredient. I like the celery, onions and pickles to be diced, finely and all fully incorporated into the mayonnaise mixture.

Personally, I prefer sweet pickles in my tuna salad, which I forgot to add to the above photograph. I also add a couple of boiled eggs. Once again, that’s my preference.

I gotta state the obvious, but what’s tuna salad without the tuna and mayo. The Dijon mustard is a nice addition, as well.
