First time I made this, I had shallots. Tonight I made do with green onions. My favorite tuna sandwich recipe by a long shot. Excellent. Thanks for posting it.
YAY! I get to rate one first! I just knew these ingredients would be terrific together! I used onion rather than shallot, because I only had onion and used fat free ingredients as well, but this turned out soooo tasty! My son kept telling me all day that he hated tuna and wouldn't eat it, so I made him a veggie platter...he ended up eating a serving of the tuna with it! 5 star recipe! Thanks so much!
I've done a lot of experimenting with different and "weird" ingredients for tuna salad but it sure is nice to get back to the basics. The only substitution I made was to use dill relish because we don't like sweet. I didn't really taste the sour cream, but that was fine... they made for a perfect lunch with some chips on the side and it was easy to throw everything together while the egg cooked. I got a perfect hard cooked egg by covering it with cold water, bringing to a boil, then once to a boil remove from heat with lid on and let sit 15 minutes without lifting the lid. Then put it in cold water for 5 minutes. Thanks for the tasty lunch!
