Tuna Egg Salad

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Happy Hippie

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.
