I love good tuna salad.
When I was growing up my Dad always took tuna sandwiches for lunch every day. Tuna, chopped pickles, miracle whip, & boiled eggs.
This recipe is a bit different.
This is one of those recipes you can tweak, leave things out of, add different things in, etc.
Mr. Right makes tuna salad better than I do. I follow all his directions but still somehow his is better.
Probably because I didn’t have to fix it.
Here’s the ingredients we use the most often:
First I chopped the onion & 2-3 spoonfuls of jalepeno slices. I used a pampered chef chopper thingamajig. My mom had one when I was little and I loved it!! I hate chopping things into small pieces, I’m terrified I’m going to cut myself.
Then I sliced up the boiled eggs. The chopper doesn’t work for eggs. Yes I did try that.
Then I added in 6 cans of tuna. Mr. Right always get the non healthy stuff in oil. He knows why, I don’t.
I mix everything together after each thing is added. I used to dump it all in and then mix it but mixing after each addition is better.
After I had mixed all of that, I added 3 heaping spoonfuls of miracle whip.
Then I added a splash of dill pickle juice and a light drizzle of mustard.
Add in however much shredded cheese you want. I used 2 handfuls.
Mr. Right likes sandwiches but I like mine on saltines or even on tortilla chips.
