Darra's Famous Tuna Waldorf Salad Sandwich Filling
November 06, 2007

I have made this tuna salad probably close to 15+ times and it is exceptional. I pretty much follow the recipe verbatim, and throw in extra nuts, apples, or tuna based on my whim of the day. The only other substitution that I might alter is that I will use pecans instead of walnuts, all just dependent on what I have in the cupboard. I make this for my family and have even served it at luncheons. It is a hit with my 3 and under kids, and a hit with my 13 and 21 year old as well. This is a "gourmet" tuna salad without spending tons of time in the kitchen, and relieves the oft boring regular tuna salad. The blends and hints of spices is wonderful without overwhelming the recipe and they compliment each other surprisingly well. I have served this to the teachers at my children's school with overwhelming applause from the teachers and staff. I bring the croissants and cheese in, but also offer (usually Boston) lettuce to the teachers so they can make a "lettuce roll sandwiches" as a lower calorie option. Kudos to Darra for saving us all from boring, dry tuna fish salad served the old fashioned way.
