    • 1 -1 1/2 cup tuna, drained
    • 1 small onion, chopped
    • 2 tablespoons finely chopped celery (optional)
    • 1/4-1/3 cup mayonnaise (Hellman's is best)

    2. 2
      Toast the bread slices.
    3. 3
      Line the bottom of a greased baking dish with 6 slices of bread (I use an 11" x 7" baking dish, just squeeze them in together, or cut to fit in baking dish), set 6 slices of bread aside.
    4. 4
      In a bowl, mix together the tuna, chopped onion, celery (if using) and mayo.
    5. 5

      This was great! I also used 3 cans of tuna and velveeta cheese. It was very simple to make also.

      This was great! I made this for supper tonight using 12 grain bread, 3 cans of tuna and Velveeta cheese as I was out of cheese slices and didn't know it until I went to make the casserole. I did put it in a 9x13 pan and still had to cut the bread to fit as the slices were rather wide. The only thing that my son said it needed was more onion! I may cut back on the mayo by a tablespoon or two and add a little dill relish the next time I make it as the tuna salad needed just a little more zip for our tastes! I appreciate recipes that I can put together in a hurry when we have something going on in the evening. This is definitely a keeper and I am looking forward to leftovers tomorrow!

      This is just what I thought it would be-tasty! I used 3 cans of tuna and American cheese. It was easy to make to. I think toasting the bread is a crucial step. it would be pretty soggy if you didn't.
