Basic Tuna Salad

This creamy and crunchy seafood salad is ideal on its own or for sandwiches. Simple to make, but so good to eat.

Basic Tuna Salad


  • 3 cans (5 oz) of tuna, drained
  • 3-4 stalks of celery, diced small
  • 2 tbsp of dill relish
  • 5 tbsp of mayonnaise
  • Salt and pepper to taste


In a large bowl, combine the tuna and celery with the relish and mayonnaise. Stir thoroughly and season with salt and pepper (if needed).


Feel free to variate to your heart's content. You could add seasonings or herbs such as granulated garlic, dill, or even oregano. You could also add in onions or even spicy ideas like jalapeños with lime juice.

Healthy It Up

Use fat-free mayonnaise if you wish to make it "healthier". You could also use Greek yogurt if you're not into mayonnaise.

Serving Suggestions

Serve on bread for sandwiches, or on lettuce for a light salad.
