need enhancement ideas for classic tuna salad
Please share your ideas on adding some unique flavors for standard tuna salad.
I'm tired of just adding onion, lemon juice, mayo and celery.
How about chopped radishes? Red onion instead of white? Haven't tried this yet but have seen recipes for spicy mustard added to tuna salad. One item I always always add is fresh chopped flat-leaf parsley. Oh, how about some finely chopped mustard greens? Just bought some from farm market and what a blast of flavor, wasabi-like!!! I might start using the mustard green addition instead of the parsley.
choped sour pickle (not sweet pickle, sugar and fish don't mix well for me)
drop of sesame oil or sesame chile oil
tobiko or masago
ground hot red pepper
Plenty of threads on tuna salad if you search
My aunt uses dill pickle in her tuna salad; potato salad too...
I like sweet pickle relish, chopped green or red onion, celery, shredded carrot, chopped hard boiled egg, jalapeno pepper, and mayo with a touch of whole grain mustard...
For an asian theme, teriyaki sauce, pickled ginger, green onion, crushed wasabi peas or a little wasabi paste and lightly toasted mixed sesame seeds
I always put capers and a little of their juice. Sometimes I put dill weed. Sometimes I mix a can of tuna with a can of sardines. I always buy the imported tuna in olive oil now. If I had a family to feed, I probably wouldn't do that!
My grandmother always made it with apple and onion.
I make it with chopped boiled eggs and Sechler's candied dill pickles/juice.
