This is the easiest, most basic way I know to make tuna salad. It is good in so many ways and so versatile you can do almost anything with it.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 (6 ounce) cans tuna (I use water packed)
  • 12 cup salad dressing (may use lite, fat free, or regular)
  • 12 cup sweet pickle relish
  • 6 hard-boiled eggs, chopped


  1. Combine all ingredients.
  2. Chill.
  3. Serve on toast, bagels, make sandwiches or stuff in tomatoes.

I always keep hard boiled eggs on hand so this was easy to throw together today. It was good. I love tuna. I did chopped up an onion to add. Very good! Thanks for the recipe.

Good basic recipe. We don't like relish so I put in some chopped onion and chopped celery.

I used this as a great base salad and added a little mustard. Thanks!
