    Great tuna salad with a kick. I made a double batch and halved the eggs, seemed like a better ratio. I also swapped out Creole mustard for Dijon and Louisiana hot sauce for Tabasco. A little more authentic without changing the flavor too much. Will definitely make again, may add celery next time.

    Like Debbwl, this is very similar to how my mother made tuna salad. My eggs were huge, so I just used 2, but kept the rest of the ingredients the same. Really enjoyed it on a sandwich thin for my lunch! Thanks for sharing! Made for Zaar Stars tag game.

    This is very similar to what my mother used to make when we were young and yes we always liked it. I scaled the recipe back to serve two, used whole grain mustard and used mayo (hate Miracle Whip). I did not over stir as I want it a bit chunky and packed in a tub for my lunch box, enjoyed on romaine leaves for a low carb meal. Next time I will add some onion, thanks for the post.

    DH liked this tuna salad a lot in a sandwich. Me it was 4 stars. But DH liked this one so much so that's 5 stars :) He will want it again soon for lunch. Like others, I'm not too sure about the eggs with the tuna. Thanks Dr. Jenny :) Made for ZWT 9

    Such a good sandwich. I loved the egg and Tabasco in this. Very simple and very good. Thanks, Dr. Jenny. Made for ZWT9.


I work full-time as a School Psychologist in Michigan. Besides the kids, one of the best aspects of the job is summer vacation, when I can concentrate on doing more of the things that I like to do---like look up recipes and play games on Recipezaar!!! I married my wonderful and handsome husband, Sean, in August 2007. He is becoming a wonderful gardender and tends to both our veggie and herb gardens. We really enjoy cooking with our own fresh ingredients. We most often cook together, so my reviews typically reflect our joint opinions. He's the better cook, so I pick up a lot of my techniques from him. My other interests include reading (now that I have time), Irish dancing (I've taken a class for the last several years), "appreciating" wine (I use the term very loosely), and listening to and going to see Irish bands (I love the Pogues). I also enjoy travelling, especially around Western Europe, where I have been multiple times. One of my favorite places is Italy, and Sean and I had a great time on our honeymoon eating, drinking, and sightseeing in the Cinque Terre and in Tuscany. This July 2009, we expanded our horizons to Eastern Europe and visited the Czech Republic, Slovenia, and Croatia. Two of my favorite dishes on the trip were Croatian: fish brodet and Hvarska gregada. I am looking forward to trying my hand at making them at home as I see that someone on Zaar, who is Croatian, posted recipes for both! Besides my husband, the other lights of my life are my cats: Chloe, Pip, and my newest ragdoll cat, Giselle, all of whom I absolutely adore. <a href="¤t=PipChloe_web.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Pip and Chloe"></a> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Giselle"></a> I've participated in the following events: <img src="" border="0" alt= "Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> I most recently had the privelege of being on the ZWT5 Team, the Sultans of Spice, with a great group of people.
