Kim's StoryI love having tuna salad on lettuce or as a sandwich; either way, I fix it the same and then add it to my choice of eats. I was raised on adding hard boiled eggs to my tuna and so it is just the way I like it along with the crunch of some celery added in and chopped onion. The seasonings mixed in with the mayo gives this tuna salad lots of flavor. Beau monde spice is one of my favorites & I am always trying to sneek it into my recipes. lol
The addition of those little salty capers I love. I add the tomatoes or pimentos for color on the lettuce salad and for a sammie I omit.
Hope you enjoy.
ALBACORE TUNA SALAD
can of albacore tuna
eggs, hard boiled and sliced
celery stalks, diced small
2 - 3 Tbsp
iceberg lettuce head, chopped
olive oil or grapeseed oil and vinegar
DRESSING FOR TUNA
garlic powder (heaping)
onion powder (heaping)
beau monde seasoning
GARNISH FOR SALAD
dozen grape tomatoes, sliced
balsamic glaze, drizzled
3Get two bowls ready by taking 1/2 of your shredded lettuce and placing it in the bowls. Drizzle olive oil and vinegar on lettuce.
4Drain tuna and place in bowl. Add celery, eggs and fresh chopped onion. Mix your mayonnaise with the seasonings and add to tuna mixture. (You don't need salt because beau monde has plenty in it.) Once you have it all mixed take an ice cream scooper or big spoon and place a scoop of tuna on top of lettuce. Then, garnish with capers, tomatoes and a circular drizzle of balsalmic glaze. Add a little more cracked pepper if you like.

Kim...this is "almost" like I make my tuna.
I always use the white albacore...can't stand the regular canned tuna (don't even like to smell it), but love the white albacore packed in water.

Thanks for sharing this recipe post Kim- I only like the white albacore in water also. This tuna mixture will taste great in the carrot rolls. Happy Easter Kim.
