Really? A recipe for tuna salad? Well, yes, really. For two reasons: 1) because my friends assure me that people do, indeed, actually need even the most basic recipes and 2) because this the only way Husband likes tuna salad and he feels pretty strongly about it.
Husband doesn't like relish or celery in tuna salad and it must – simply MUST – have diced onion in it or his whole week is RUINED. Ruined, I say!
I like this simple version because I think it makes wicked good tuna melts! I just plop some on a hamburger bun, throw a piece of cheese on it and place it (and the top of the bun, split-side up) under the broiler until the cheese is melted and the top bun is toasted.
And this recipe is just a jumping-off point for you. Add whatever you like to this basic recipe and make it yours :)
Husband-Approved Tuna Salad

1/2 cup finely diced onion
1/2 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning*
Black pepper to taste
1/4 cup mayonnaise
Combine all ingredients and stir until thoroughly combined. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
*if you don’t have Old Bay, use 1/3 teaspoon of salt and a pinch of celery seed if you have it.
