Let’s step away from the traditional, boring onion and celery in your tuna salad. I’m a big fan of multiple flavors that hit more than just two parts of the tongue. Instead try my tuna salad with something slightly spicy and salty with pepperoncini’s, sweet and tangy with amazing bread & butter pickles. I love using a little juice of both to keep it from being too dry and having to use too much mayo. I recently shared an easy Homemade Mayonnaise recipe that would go amazing with this, especially if you’re into controlling the ingredients that go into your food.
Enjoy this not just as a sandwich or wrap but with your favorite tortilla or pita chips, celery for low carb, top it on slices of zucchini or yellow squash, even slice carrots diagonally to use as chips. As always, get creative!
1 5oz can albacore tuna packed in water, drained
1/4 red onion, finely chopped
1/4 heaping cup finely chopped pepperoncini’s (about 5 large peppers)
1 tablespoon pepperoncini juice
1/4 heaping cup finely chopped bread & butter pickles
1 tablespoon pickle juice
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1/2 tablespoon brown mustard
salt and pepper to taste
In a medium bowl break apart the chunks of tuna using a fork then add all the ingredients and mixed together.
