Virgina's Tuna Salad
June 07, 2011

I stepped it up a notch. I added diced red onion, lots of celery for the crunch. Instead of sweet relish I opted to add dill or sometimes my favorite dill pickels diced up and my other version...Giuliano jalapeno spread ( it's really a relish)! WOW. Or...chili flakes. Let the flavors mesh for several hours or overnight. I've served in a hollowed our red bell pepper. Even diced the tops into the salad. Great on crackers too. Toasted bread is a must! I don't use the egg, but I do use Costco's Kirkland Albacore and chill the cans ahead. I keep all in the fridge for fast cool salads or sandwiches. Also, another variation....diced cucumbers (persian), dried dill.....the sky is the limit. Even added tabasco at times, or lemon juice. Have fun...let the family rate them or have several and give your guests rate them. I did this for an all day bbq as lunch snacks. SoCal so we try to make it healthy. I also use light Best Foods mayo. You can do all the above and also add small shell pasta. Enjoy
