Here’s the deal, even though just mayonnaise and tuna is technically tuna salad, it’s absolutely wrong. It’s just awful in comparison to what you can do by adding just a few additional ingredients.
So here’s what you do:
Tuna Salad Ingredients
Tuna, probably canned. But it’s fine if you have an actual tuna fish you want to grind up. That could be fun.
And you’ll still need mayonnaise.
But now get yourself an onion, some dill, some dijon mustard, some celery, and a bunch of salt and pepper.
How to Make Tuna Salad
Mix everything together.
Okay, to be more specific.
For two to three cans of tuna:
Chop up half an onion and a couple celery stalks. You’ll want them chopped very fine.
Use about two tablespoons of dill, and two to three tablespoons of dijon mustard.
Add mayonnaise until the whole thing is tuna salady.
Then eat with crackers, or if you hate crackers like you should (who doesn’t hate crackers) put it on a sandwich.
Ways to Make Tuna Salad Better
You can also add a bit of cayenne pepper to give the whole thing some zing. Or some lemon juice. Or anything.
