Ingredients10 m servings 179
- 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.
This is the best tuna salad recipe I have ever had and the only way I will ever make it going forward. Thanks for sharing!
