This is the recipe I use for my family and its always a hit. I use an equal amount of finely chopped hard boiled egg added to a can of tuna (I prefer the albacore tuna). For those who don't care for a strongish fish flavor in their tuna salad, this'll do it for you. It truely is awesome. Enjoy!

I prefer to use green onion including a bit of the green part for color. It's milder than red onion. Personally, I don't add mustard at all. Albacore tuna has such a mild taste I think mustard overwhelms the flavor of the tuna. And always Hellman's mayonnaise. I rarely add celery because it "weeps" into the tuna salad especially if you have any left-over.

Yum! I used two eggs to one can of tuna and added some fresh, diced, seeded tomato. The previous posters comment about powdered mustard threw me off and I used powdered mustard... I should have used prepared! All I could taste was mustard, and I had to double everything to make it better. Totally my fault, but for anyone else... 1-2 tablespoons means prepared mustard!

Simple, but flavorful way to make both plain "tuna salad" as well as this combo. I always add mustard (powdered preferably) to my tuna and it turns out with that added depth that lacks from just tuna w/ mayo and black pepper. This will become my new standard way of making these!
