We love tuna salad.  This is our personalized spin on the delicious classic.

Andrew's Secret Tuna Salad

  • 18 oz white albacore tuna in water (approx. 1 12 oz can and 1 pouch)
  • 4 tablespoons plain yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon dill weed
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon lemon pepper

  1. DRAIN tuna completely.  Make sure all water is drained - this will make the texture and consistency of your finished product spot on!
  2. MIX in yogurt.
  3. ADD seasoned salt, dill weed, ground mustard, and lemon pepper.
  4. STIR until well combined.  Spices should be evenly distributed in the tuna.
  5. SLAP on a sandwich (or however you choose to devour your tuna salad) and enjoy!

We love tuna salad.  Specifically tuna salad sandwiches.  This particular recipe combines a lot of traditional spices into one tunalicious blast.  You get the classic (insert chicken/egg/tuna) salad taste from the seasoned salt, a hint of deli style tuna from the dill weed and ground mustard, and a  tart yet comforting twist from the lemon pepper.  Throw some of this tuna on bread (we used some old fashioned whole wheat, but think sourdough would be delicious) with spinach, tomato, some banana peppers, and a little yellow mustard, and you've got a sandwich that will satisfy even those that don't care for tuna.  Trust us on that one - we converted my mom into a tuna-fan with this recipe!
