There’s really nothing special about this recipe, other than I love it every once in awhile! It’s quick, satisfying, easy, and versatile.
1-12 oz. can light tuna or albacore in water, drained
1 slice onion, diced
1 stalk celery, diced
5-6 large black olives, sliced
1 tbls. sweet pickle relish (make your own)
1 tbls. mayonnaise, or more to taste
dash of sea salt or real salt and pepper, to taste
Drain tuna fish well. In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients, mixing well until combined. Cover and chill about 1 hour before serving to give all the flavors a chance to blend.
- Serve over baby spinach or mixed salad greens
- Top on slightly toasted bread
- Make it a “tuna melt” by topping tuna salad on toasted bread with cheese slices; slightly melt cheese by putting sandwich in your microwave for about 10-15 seconds.
- Add it to macaroni salad for a light summer dish
