Cooking – Basic Tuna Salad For Two

This basic tuna salad has been the go-to lunch salad for years. I find it super fast and easy to fix and very flexible. I typically add more than the basic recipe, and usually, I just needed out of the bowl with a fork I don’t bother with making a sandwich.

This tuna salad can be supplemented with any number of other ingredients to make it more vegetable intensive and or simply to stretch the tuna salad.

Cook’s Notes

  • I usually go for the tuna fish packed in all olive oil for this recipe I find the olive oil tuna fish is tastier and moister
  • on days when I wanted a little spicier tuna salad, I add half teaspoon of standard yellow mustard or, perhaps a splash of hot sauce
  • typically, the wants of vegetables in the tuna salad, I will take out a cup of frozen peas, give them a quick rinse in warm water, and stir them in.
  • This salad can also be supplemented with other ingredients according to your desire. Among some of the more common ingredients are:
    • diced celery
    • diced onion
    • sliced green onion or chives
    • diced Apple
    • capers
    • diced parsley
