"This is a simple recipe but big on flavor and it even tastes better if left in the fridge a few hours to blend the flavors so I suggest to do that --- it's wonderful with a slice of tomato on top of the tuna and served between two thick slices of toasted whole grain bread or in a pita bread or served on a plate on top of a bed of lettuce, I sometimes add in some chopped small sweet gherkin pickles or yum yum pickles also, feel free to add in some cooked macaroni pasta and serve on a plate, only fresh lemon juice for this bottled will not be as good. I have left the mustard powder and Tabasco as optional I most always add it in it takes this salad to another level. Servings are 2-3 sandwiches"

Drain the tuna then hand-squeeze out any excess moisture; place in a bowl then flake with a fork. Add in all remaining ingredients up to the Tabasco sauce; mix until well combined, adjusting all seasonings to suit taste.

Step 2

Cover with plastic wrap and chill for at least 2 hours (more is even better!). Divide onto toasted or untoasted bread slices with lettuce leaves and tomato slices.

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



As always Kitten, another keeper! Only thing I did different is I like chopped hard boiled eggs in mine and I use dill relish, just a personal preference. Other than that, the touch of mustard is the only difference than my old recipe :)

Hubby loves tuna, and this is his favorite tuna salad sandwich. He says the pepper and the mustard really add to the flavor. I use my zucchini relish, and to be honest, by the time I finish putting this together, I am even tempted, although I'm not a tuna eater.
