Tuna Salad With Fried Onions

Another version of tuna fish salad. It seems like a lot of mayo in the recipe, but after chilling, it's the perfect amount. Use in a sandwich, on crackers, as a dip. I use tinned, fried onions from the Asian or Indian grocer. I think French's brand may work too although I've never used it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Squeeze water from the tuna and place tuna in a bowl.
  2. Add the mayo and stir until combined*.
  3. Add the fried onions and gently combine.
  4. Refrigerate for 2-hours.
  5. *Before chillling, it will seem to be too much mayo, but it 'tightens' as it chills.
  6. The cooking time is the chilling time.

This is pretty good. I tried some right after making it and again after it had chilled, and the chilling definitely improved the flavor. Tried it on sandwich bread and just by itself, and I prefer eating this just by itself. It's a nice change from my standard tuna salad recipe. Thanks, Kathy!

I had this for lunch today and I wasn't too crazy about it. I used French's fried onion and Hellmann's mayo and I also added chopped pickle. I guess that I'm just used to regular tuna salad. Thanks for the try.

This was unusual, but good. My son really went for it. Thanks for the posting!
