Completely Different Tuna & Egg Salad (No Mayo)

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by IngridH

Not your usual tuna or egg salad, this can be enjoyed as is, in a sandwich, on top of greens, or any other way that sounds good to you. If you want to add a touch of mayo for creaminess, go ahead- but it's plenty good without! You can change up the ingredients to suit what you have on hand, or what you like- chopped pickles instead of capers, oil packed tuna instead of water packed, different herbs, shallot instead of green onion... This is just how I first made it based on what was in my kitchen.

Tasted grwat and instructions are easy to follow but I wasnhome for lunch and the recipe says it takes ten minutes. NEEDS TO STATE ANY ADDITIONAL TIMES LIKE CHILL OR PREP TO INCLUDE BOILING EGGS. Didn't have ample time to make. Write these better in the future.
