If you really enjoy tuna salad but haven’t found the perfect recipe yet, you’ve come to the right place. This recipe is fantastic in a sandwich, stuffed in peppers, spread on crustini or scooped on top of a fresh salad.
It starts with a couple of cans of albacore tuna strained, drained or squeezed to get most of the water out. It’s then added to just a few ingredients to give it zip, zing and sweetness.
This recipe was created by one of my servers, Lori Lill, for my restaurants years ago and quickly became one of the most popular items on the menu. If you have a hankering for a great tuna salad sandwich or you are looking for a new kid’s lunchbox specialty, this is the recipe for you.
It’s simple, versatile and tasty. I think this is going to a new go-to favorite.
2 cans (5 oz.) albacore tuna in water, drained well
1/4 cup Marzetti Cole Slaw Dressing Lite
1/4 cup Lite Miracle Whip
1 tablespoon celery, chopped fine
2 heaping teaspoons sweet pickle relish
2 teaspoons red onion, diced fine
1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper
Drain the juice from the albacore tuna and place in a bowl. Add the remainder of the ingredients and gently mix together. Can be used in a sandwich, on a crustini, stuffed in bell peppers or in a salad.
