Creamy and Crunchy Tuna Salad Supreme

"This tuna salad is made special with the addition of cream cheese and chopped raw carrots. Red peppers make it pretty and one or two other vegetables, fruits or nuts keep it changing and interesting. I developed this recipe after I tasted cream cheese in a salmon salad sandwich at a funeral lunch in Canada many years ago. Add baby spinach or lettuce leaves, and serve on your favorite bread or as a wrap in a tortilla."

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Make it your own; add one or two of these optional ingredients as desired: 1 tablespoon finely minced onion or green onion, 1 to 2 tablespoons chopped sweet pickles (such as Sechler's(R) Candied Sweet Dills), 2 tablespoons chopped pecans or almonds, 1 to 2 tablespoons chopped celery, or 2 tablespoons chopped dried apricots, cherries or cranberries. I have to laugh sometimes when I think I have so many ingredients one could ask, 'Where is the tuna?'

Winner! What I liked about this when I looked over the recipe was the novel addition of the cream cheese and it worked! I did miss, however, some of the tang and flavor more mayonnaise would...

I really like the touch of cream cheese with tuna. As the footnotes suggested, I made it my own. Added minced onion, sweet pickles, and almonds. Thanks Joan!

This is very good with the addition of cream cheese. I sliced a cucumber in half lengthwise, scraped out the seeds, and filled both halves with this tuna salad. I'll be making this tuna salad re...

I liked this, but not so much because the taste was anything new or different. It was because the cream cheese, added, made it hold up better. I have a manual shredder that sort of looks like a ...

I was out of tuna so I used chicken. Delicious! The cream cheese is a delightful addition. Tuna is on my shopping list so I can make this again.
