Last Updated: Friday, March 23, 2012 - 08:44

Recipe for a simple, traditional, classic tuna salad.

Ingredients

•2-3 cans of high-quality tuna, or 1 lb of your homemade tunafish
•4 T. diced celery
•6-7 T. high quality mayonnaise
•2-3 T. Dijon or other good mustard
•1-2 t. finely chopped dill
•1/2 a medium onion, finely chopped
•1 T. finely chopped parsley (optional)
•1/4 t. cayenne (optional)
•Salt and pepper to taste

Preparation

Flake the tuna into chunks. If you bought it oil-packed, as I recommend, let it be coated in oil. Don`t wash the tuna.

Mix the tuna with all the other ingredients in a bowl. Test for salt and add it to taste.

Optional

Make your own mayonnaise! There is a great recipe linked below.

To serve -- well, we all know how to eat a tuna sandwich! But I like my sandwiches on toasted crusty bread. If you want to go upscale, serve them like an Italian bruschetta: Open-faced on thick crusty toast.
