Healthy Tuna Salad Recipe
Tasty Tuna Salad Recipe
Healthy Tuna Salad Recipe. I’ve been making tuna sandwiches for years, but people have always thought the way I made them was weird. I just love my recipe, and usually, if I can get someone to be open minded long enough to try it – they love it too. You should try my tuna sandwich recipe for yourself – I’ll think you’ll love it!
First, the basis for this recipe comes from my mother. But the additional things I like to add – well that’s just my twist on it! Read also: Healthy Seafood Recipes
What you need:
* 1 can or pouch of Tuna in water (never oil)
* 1 stalk celery
* 1 sm. onion or a few stalks of green onion
* green bell pepper (if you have it)
* 1 tsp or 1 clove minced garlic
* dash of salt
* dash of fresh ground pepper
* 1 tbsp sweet relish
* 1 tsp sugar or Splenda
* 1 tsp mustard
* 2-3 heaping tbsp mayonnaise or miracle whip
* a handful shredded cheese (optional)
I think my mother learned this recipe from her mother, which is kind of designed to get kids to eat Tuna without them really knowing that they’re eating something “fishy”. All I know is that I don’t even care for fish or Tuna that much, but I could eat these tuna sandwiches all day long! To get started get a medium mixing bowl and finely dice up your celery and onion.

You can use any type of onion, last week I used a small white onion, this week I used green onions. Both were great. Also, (if you like) chop up about 1/4 of a medium green pepper -finely mince it and add it to the bowl. Add your salt, pepper, sweet relish, sugar (or Splenda), minced garlic, mustard, then the tuna. I usually mix it up pretty good at this point so it’s easier to mix when you add the mayonnaise.
I start with about 2 heaping tablespoons of mayo and add more if it’s too dry. Last, add a handful of shredded cheese (if you like) and mix one last time. Then you’re ready to make your sandwiches! You can use fresh soft white bread, warm french bread, or even a toasted bagel – all are wonderful!
I like my version of Tuna salad because it’s slightly gourmet and the flavors mix nicely. It’s a little crunchy, a little sweet – it’s just really good!
