If you cook, you have your own version and picture of what Tuna Salad should be. I have my own version, of course, that I have used in restaurants in the past and it brings a lot to the table. Which every route you choose to go, a quality Tuna/Albacore is critical to making the salads. I also make sure I use fresh crisp veggies and additions to the salad itself.
In this version it made for a great open faced tuna melt!
CHRIS’S TUNA SALAD
Makes 4 sandwiches
|8oz canned, quality tuna
Mayonnaise, (I use olive oil based)
Hardboiled eggs, diced
- Make sure everything is chilled as to minimize the time these ingredients are in the danger-zone.
- I prefer the method of mixing everything BUT the tuna in a mixing bowl, adjust seasonings.
- Then fold the tuna into the mixture gently so not to break it up.
- Chill and serve.
- To make a tuna melt, cover with a sharp cheese like a Cheddar or Provolone for best results and place under a broiler until melted.
