I thought I would post this recipe and dedicate it to the mom who was more of a mom to me and that is my mother-in-law! She is no longer here and in her memory I posted the recipe that made me love the simplicity of her cooking! At first, I was like "YOU CAN'T DO THAT WITH TUNA AND EGG!" She reassured me that the taste would be divine! This recipe is wonderful for when we go to summer picnic potlucks and it makes for an easy night of cooking when it is hot outside! As my children have grown, they still to this very day and miss their Grandmother's simple but very delicious meals! ENJOY!!!

How To Make tuna egg salad

  • 3
    Slice the egg vertical.
  • 4
    Mix it into the tuna to complete the salad.
  • 5
    Toast the bread.

    Then butter the toast before putting the salad on.
