Are you a fan of canned tuna? I love the stuff, can eat it right
out of the can. I prefer it "packed in oil" but nowdays I buy
the "packed in water" version. Also who cans it makes a
difference as well. Some look almost mushy while a leading
brand is in nice chunks. Here is an easy and quick recipe.
2 cans (5-6 ounces) chunk light tuna in water or oil, drained
2 hardboiled eggs, shelled and cut into small chunks
1/4 cup mayonnaise, plus about 1 tsp. more
2 Tbsp. diced fine, celery
1/4 tsp. salt, 1/4 tsp. pepper, 1/4 tsp. onion powder
1 slightly heaping Tbsp. of sweet relish
In a medium size bowl, combine all the ingredients and stir.
Taste. I don't like a lot of mayo, but if you thinks it needs
a little more this or that then add and taste.
Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate till needed.
Make a sandwich, fill a tomato, eat it simply with crackers.
My mom use to make Tuna Melts. She'd take a hot dog
bun, add a slice of American Cheese, and the tuna salad
and heat it in the oven. An old school cafeteria item.
Have a grilled cheese with tuna fish added, (tuna melt.)
*Tuna salad can take green peppers, pimentos, diced onion.
*Eggs can be left out.
