Amazing Albacore Tuna Salad

Kim Biegacki Recipe

By Kim Biegacki pistachyoo

I 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.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
After boiling eggs pierce them with a needle on your egg slicer to remove shell easily.
2
Hard boil your eggs and then slice them two ways in your egg slicer.
3
Get two bowls ready by taking 1/2 of your shredded lettuce and placing it in the bowls. Drizzle olive oil and vinegar on lettuce.
4
Drain 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.
