Recipe by dividend

This is the tuna salad my mom used to make. Simple, comforting, wonderful on soft white bread. The quantities are estimates, since Mom never really measured.

This is exactly the way I learned to make tuna salad. Simple, but oh so good! Made for My 3 Chefs (. . . Like Mom Used to Make theme).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Coarsely chop the hardboiled eggs and add to a bowl.
  2. Flake in the tuna.
  3. Add the pickle relish, and stir to combine.
  4. Add the mayonnaise a little at a time, tasting as you go, until you get a consistency you like. I like my tuna salad kind of creamy.
  5. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  7. Use canned salmon in place of the tuna. Make sure to pick out all the pieces of bone and cartilage first.
