    This is a great and very simple tuna salad, perfect as a side dish for a summer barbecue or just as a light meal. You might want to use less mayonnaise if you prefer a drier salad.

    I don't know if I'd refer to this as "drop dead delicious" as we are talking about tuna salad here. I cut this down to one serving and while I do love tuna salad this recipe is very basic and a good start to add in whatever other favorite ingredients you like. I always like to add a bit of garlic and onion powders plus a bit of salt and pepper. As far as the amount of mayo is concerned, I always add that to my own tastes. Some people like a dry tuna salad others like more mayo than tuna it seems. Whatever your preference you can give this one a try...  -  23 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Has a good flavor but I made it with the recommended 2 cups of mayo, and it was WAY too much...so I made it over again using only 1/2 cup of mayo...better.  -  10 Jun 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Very easy, but I wonder if 2 Cups of mayo is a typo??? How about 1/2 C??  -  12 Sep 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
