- Prep a side salad of shredded lettuce and chopped cherry tomatoes.
- To make the tuna salad base:
1-2 cans of tuna fish, or tuna chunks
add in mayonnaise until creamy - about 1/2 cup
add in mustard to your taste -I use about 1/4 a cup
add a pinch of garlic salt
- Mix in the following with a fork:
4 boiled, peeled and chopped eggs
1/4 cup of cubed Colby / Monterey jack cheese - whatever cheese you like
(or you can sprinkle on shredded cheese if that's what you've got - I toss in whatever we have)
1/8 cup of fine chopped onion
2 chopped dill pickles
Once it's all mixed, spoon it onto the lettuce and tomato and sprinkle black pepper over the top. Or just do like my kids and hubby do and make sandwiches out of it. ;0) As for pepper and seasoning, we sprinkle Slap Ya Mama Cajun seasoning over the top of it, but I don't think it's available everywhere.
Oh, hey, just for the sake of saying so, by the time you mix everything in, it's going to be chunky, but it shouldn't be thick or dry. If it does seem a little dry, add more mayo. It should spread easily onto bread if you're making a sandwich.
