Ok, this is pretty much the same ingredient that go on a Chicago hotdog, except the meat is Tuna LOL!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 14 cup tomatoes (diced)
  • 14 cup chopped dill pickle
  • 2 tablespoons chopped onions (you can add more if you like)
  • 1 teaspoon branston pickle (which isn't from Chicago- it's British, BUT SO GOOD! Use the Branston or Ploughman instead of "Relis)
  • celery salt (optional)
  • 1 celery rib, chopped (optional -this is for extra crunch)
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon mustard
  • 2 (5 ounce) cans light chunk tuna in water (NEVER use "Albacore" tuna because it's LOADED with mercury)

Directions

  1. Easy: Toss everything into a bowl and mix.
  2. It taste even better if you chill in the fridge for an hour or two before using.
  3. This is great for a quick snack, to put on top of a salad, or as a meal. You can even use 1 cup of this to make a Tuna Casserole! Yeah, you can! And it's fun!

This is a very tasty tuna salad! I don't care for onions so left them out; I did use the optional celery to get that nice crunch (plus I just like celery!). I couldn't get the Branston relish so I used some chopped candied jalapeno instead. I thought this combination of ingredients might be good but I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked it. Served with crackers and really enjoyed - thanks for sharing the recipe!
