Creamy and Crunchy Tuna Salad Supreme
Ingredients10 m servings 179 cals
- Stir mayonnaise and cream cheese together in a bowl until smooth. Add tuna, carrot, and red pepper; season with pepper.
- Cook's Note:
- Make it your own; add one or two of these optional ingredients as desired: 1 tablespoon finely minced onion or green onion, 1 to 2 tablespoons chopped sweet pickles (such as Sechler's® Candied Sweet Dills), 2 tablespoons chopped pecans or almonds, 1 to 2 tablespoons chopped celery, or 2 tablespoons chopped dried apricots, cherries or cranberries. I have to laugh sometimes when I think I have so many ingredients one could ask, 'Where is the tuna?'

I was out of tuna so I used chicken. Delicious! The cream cheese is a delightful addition. Tuna is on my shopping list so I can make this again.
OMG! So good. I've never had cream cheese in it before but it pairs nicely. I took the chefs note and made it my own. I added roasted redpeppers and sweet heat relish. I'll never go back to old ...
Made this using home canned salmon since I always seem to have more of that than my canned tuna. Other than that the only thing I did different was to omit the carrots since I didn't have any on...
