“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.”

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!



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...
