Easy Tuna Salad

Sharing is caring!

One of my favorite things is mayo.  Seriously.  I could and can eat it by the spoonful.  Because I love mayo, I’m always making foods that require it as an ingredient.  Mr. Bejelly did not like tuna fish and no matter how much I tried to convince he would like it, it wasn’t he saw Little tear through it like he was in a berry patch (my son loves berries) that he took his first bite.  Anyhow, he was making every kind face because I put eggs in my tuna.  You would think I had broke some sacred tuna fish law the way he was going on about it.

I soldiered on because I have eaten it this way my entire life (and after he took a bite and kept eating I figured it was all good).    This recipe is super easy.  I love that it’s fast and filling.  For the bread, I cheated and bought a box of Chebe Focaccia mix

    I don’t love tuna, but your recipe still looks good!

    I like mayo, but am excruciatingly fussy about tuna & will only buy good jarred tuna slices. The cheapest I’ve found (that my fussy butt will eat) is $7 a jar, so it isn’t going in mayo 😛

      Aw, come on now Robin 🙂 It is so true that the quality of tuna affects the taste. I buy an expensive can of tuna because I can’t stand the taste of some of the lesser brands.

    Sacred tuna fish law. LOL. I’m kind of like that about potato salad.

      Thanks I just found it at Marshall’s lol.

    I love tuna salad and so do my kids! I look forward to trying this recipe over the summer.

    Now this is interesting because I despise mayo as much as you love it! That means I can’t eat things like this because I have yet to find a good substitute.

    This is how I make mine, except I use a little less mayo and a little more mustard. 🙂 I’ve always made it (so did my Mom) with hard boiled eggs in it.

    Interesting, I’ve never heard of eggs in tuna salad before. I usually make mine with Miracle Whip, I like that zing to it.

    My tuna salad has never looked this good!

  9. Maryann June 6, 2013 at 10:46 am

    I love egg and onion in mine, and sometimes I’ll sneak in some sweet pickle relish – no HFCS stuff!

    We love tuna salad here. It’s so easy to make and so tasty. I am with you I love me some mayo.

  11. nicole @nicky_olea June 9, 2013 at 10:48 am

    This is just beautiful. I’m sure it tastes just as good, but your photos of your recipes are so pretty!

  12. Lisa June 20, 2013 at 8:09 pm

    This looks really good!

  13. Leilani July 8, 2013 at 10:25 pm

    My husband would love this. Tuna salad is his fave! I, on the other hand, am not a fan of tuna.

  14. LyndaS July 9, 2013 at 4:19 pm

    That looks delicious. I needed a tuna salad recipe. Thanks for sharing yours.

    I was just looking at your recipes and saw this yummy one. I won’t need to copy it as this is the way I make my tuna as well! I do add chopped up sweet pickles (sugar-free) occasionally. I either eat it as is, wrapped in lettuce or piled on top of shredded lettuce.

    1. Kelly Bejelly January 10, 2014 at 9:16 am

      Yum! Now I have to make tuna fish today 🙂 Thanks for your comment Kathy
