    Hi, not really a salad, but you could eat it cold, I serve it with a side salad.
    Fry a finely chopped onion in a little butter and some of the drained oil from a tin of tuna, don't brown the onion.
    Put into a dish, you can add some canned, drained sweetcorn to this, then add flaked tuna. make a white cheese sauce, adding some grated nutmeg
    Cook some macaronni pasta. mix together with the sauce. add to the tuna and onion mix.Top with breadcrumbs mixed with grated cheese and place under the grill until brown and bubbling. I serve this with a mixed salad.My husbands favourite summer dish. Letty

    I made my favorite recipe for a class meeting 25-30 years ago. I added some finely chopped pecans and about 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper and those who ate it raved about it. I used 2 cans of tuna, for my base. I haven't made it in years so don't remember the exact recipe now. But mostly I wing it when I make it.

    Same recipe as mine, but sometimes I use the envelopes of tuna if they are one sale.

    My favorite Tuna Sandwich:
    Tuna (Costco's Kirkland brand Tuna by Bumblebee is BEST, NO MSG/chicken broth added)
    Mayo, Chopped: celery, apples (apples neutralize the fishy taste... it mocks chicken) & sweet pickles, crunchy lettuce, avocado on Oatmeal Bread.

    i use very well drained tuna, generally white as that's dh's preference, and add half a small well-chopped onion ( if you have non-onion eaters leave the pieces big enough to pull out), about 2-3 tablespoons of mayo ( or miracle whip, depending on your crowd. we are mayo people), at this point you can add a tablespoon plain yogurt if you need more moistness, and i chop up about 1/2 an qpple with or without peel. with the peel is pretty. and about a teaspoon of sweet relish, or dill relish, again it's a personal taste thing. then salt and pepper to taste. a little lemon or lime juice is a nice touch. some people enjoy some pecan pieces or walnut bits, but i'm allergic so never include them. if i want more crunch i add celery, chopped water chestnut or cucumber. personally, i love well drained tuna with just enough mayo, and salt and pepper to taste. my mother made it with mustard ( the yellow kind) but that was never to my taste. add dried or fresh parsley, dried or fresh dill, or a small amount of curry powder. tuna is sooooo versatile! i even like freshly picked peas or freshly thawed peas gently mixed in. and i've had it with cream cheese added to the mayo. it's also good with sliced green grapes. to cut down on fat totals, use a little applesauce to replace some of the mayo or miracle whip. i almost forgot that i like to add chopped olives, either green with/without pimiento, or black, hard cooked egg and a touch of nutmeg, finely chopped pear, cilantro, pick and choose! it's all good! and i love it on toasted cinnamon raisin bread! and if i don't have that i've been known to toss in a few raisins. i also love it served in a lettuce leaf cup, or a hollowed out tomato or smallish green pepper. so many ways to eat it, and all are yummy!

    My fam loves my tuna, but I'm not sure if it's that good, or if they are happy to not have to make it: :-O
    Starkist tuna in water, drained
    1/2 amount of mayo needed
    1/4 amount of mustard
    1/4 amount of sour cream
    Add 3 chopped boiled eggs and chopped dill pickles.

    My wife used to make the tuna for her sister's restaurant and we've made it like that ever since. Tuna packed in water drained well, sweet or dill relish, mayo or miracle whip, finely diced onion, and 6 finely crushed saltine crackers. It's great that way.

    Our tuna salad is: well drained Tuna, diced onion, diced celery, dill weed, salt pepper.....and mayo to taste.
    sometimes we add sweet pickle relish and/or hard boiled eggs.

    I am quite health conscious person so i always try my best to eat healthy and pure stuff.I buy StarKist, chunk light tuna. On the pkg, it says fresher tasting , no draining , there is no water or juice in it. It comes in an aluminum packing.
