Momma’s Tuna Salad

15-fat-burning-foodsI love tuna salad and I think I am the only one in my house that will actually eat tuna. However, anytime anyone else has tried my tuna salad they loved it and wanted the recipe. I usually make tuna salad the most in the summer time so I thought I would share how I do it. 🙂 Hope you enjoy and please feel free to leave comments or suggestions below. We all love to hear other peoples taste buds.


  • Two 6-ounce cans white meat tuna packed in water, drained
  • 2 boiled eggs, chopped into small pieces, optional but sooo good
  • 2-3 tablespoons minced red or sweet yellow onion
  • 2-3 tablespoons sweet relish (or dill if you prefer)
  • 1/3 cup prepared mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard, to taste
  • 2 pinches ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp parsley
  • 1-2 teaspoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • A few dashes of hot sauce, Optional


  • Boil eggs
  • Mix all ingredients to a bowl and mix well.
  • You can eat immediately, but I like to let it sit in the fridge for a few ours so the flavors blend.

You can serve with bread, on crackers, toasted bread or bun or even on a salad. The choice is yours! 🙂

  1. Looks good. I’ll have to try this recipe. My usually consists of tuna, chopped up tabasco pickles, mustard & mayo, and salt. I usually use ritz or saltine crackers instead of bread.
