Found this recipe on a Hellman's mayo coupon card. Sound delicious, light and refreshing. Posting here for safe keeping. When I make it, my preference would be to use the tuna in the foil packets (no draining necessary). Feel free to use your favorite brand of products. I suspect this would be good using chicken instead of tuna too or served over lettuce, etc :) If you try it, I hope you enjoy it!
- 10 ounces albacore tuna in water, drained and flaked (2 5 oz cans)
- 1⁄3 cup mayonnaise
- 1⁄4 cup celery, finely chopped
- 1⁄4 cup apple, diced
- 1⁄4 cup cranberries, dried
- 1⁄4 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped (optional)
- 4 slices cheddar cheese or 4 slices muenster cheese, diced
- 2 tablespoons red onions, finely chopped
- 2 (8 inch) pita breads, halved
- Combine first 8 ingredients in a bowl.
- Stuff pita bread halves with tuna mixture and enjoy!
We also had to leave out the dried cranberries, but really enjoyed this tuna salad. We will make this again. Try it, y'all!<br/>Follow-up: Made this again, this time with 7 ounces of tuna, Miracle Whip instead of mayo, golden raisins for the dried cranberries, 1/2 of a chopped Gala apple, and two thin slices of yellow onion. Yum, yum, yum all over again!
I had to leave out the cranberries, but even then this was a great form of tuna salad. Love the crunch and freshness from the apple, and walnuts. Add to that the great flavor from a fine cheddar and I could almost tune out the tuna (I KNOW that sounds weird to say given that this is a tuna recipe after all).
I love 'crunch' and this salad has lots of it and tons of flavour too. Who would have thought of putting these ingredients together. Amazing.....I wouldn't change a thing about it except maybe the pita bread. I'm not fan. I did try the foil packets and thought it was very easy. No difference in price either. Gotta love that! Thanks Bobtail for that suggestion. Honoured to make this as a "Thank You" for voting for Lawrencetown, Nova Scotia in the 2010 Kraft Hockeyville Competition.
