Curry Apple Tuna Salad

Total Time

This is my mother's tuna salad. I added the walnuts after I married a man who loves nuts. Melt it with cheese on an English muffin or a piece of rye for a quick lunch.


  1. Mix tuna, apples and walnuts with a fork in a medium bowl.
  2. Add mustard and mayonnaise to taste (amounts are suggestions).
  3. Shake in curry powder and mix.

My husband liked this as is but it was way too much mustard for my taste. If I make it again, I may cut the amount of mustard in half.

This was a wonderfully light lunch after all of the heavy holiday foods! Served this on a toasted bun and with a side of fresh fruit salad. This is very filling. Loved the crunch of the walnuts and the taste of the apple. Thanks for posting. DH really enjoyed this.

This is a terrific tuna salad. I love the nuts in there. It's not over-mayonnaised; you could even add a little more mayo. It may seem like it's a lot of Dijon mustard, but nothing overpowers anything. I even added a generous 3 "pinches" of curry powder, and still nothing was overpowering. The apple (I used Braeburn) adds a nice sweet/tartness. This would be a good salad for luncheons or wedding/baby showers. Thanx for posting this....I'll make it often.
