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.

Directions

  1. Place egg in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil and immediately remove from heat. Cover and let eggs stand in hot water for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from hot water, and cool under cold running water. Peel.
  2. Place the eggs and pickles into a food processor, and pulse until roughly chopped. Transfer to a medium bowl, and stir in tuna and celery. Season with salt and pepper, and stir in the pickle juice until thoroughly blended. Serve on bread or lettuce.

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.

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!
