When I taught school my co-workers and I often shared recipes. Here is one that a special friend was so gracious to give me! With the addition of cheese and relish it is surprisingly delicious. I added Tony's, which gives it a nice kick! :)

This simple tuna salad is sure to become a family favorite. We love the flavor and texture hard-boiled eggs add to the tuna salad. Just a little bit of dill relish is enough to give that needed tang. Adding Creole seasoning is just enough seasoning to keep this from being plain. Not all Creole seasonings are the same. If you don't use Tony Chachere's, you might need to add a pinch of salt since every seasoning has a different amount of salt. Add this egg tuna salad to a hoagie bun for a fantastic lunch.
