How To Make A Tasty Tuna Salad
Mama’s Tuna Salad Recipe
Every family has its own recipe for tuna salad. It is a common meal for lunch. Tuna is one of the easiest recipes to make. It is both inexpensive and nutritious to eat for lunch. This sandwich is easy on the pocketbook for college students, moms, or singletons like me. This is my family’s recipe. BUT first, a short story that inspired this blog.
A few weeks ago my sister Angel was making tuna salad for her and her grandson Austin. She told our other sister Debby that she never seems to make it as mom makes it. Debby told her she was forgetting the eggs. Apparently, she has been making it for years without the eggs.
She boiled the eggs, peeled, and mashed them up. Then she mixed the eggs into the tuna and then apparently took a short break to do something else. When she came back her grandson Austin had eaten the whole thing. He commented, “That was the best tuna I’ve ever had!”.
The next day Austin was running to the market to pick up a few things. Angel asked him to pick up another can of tuna. He said “Why? We just ate tuna yesterday!” She said, “No! YOU ate tuna yesterday!”
Sometimes you just have to laugh at your family.
Here’s Mama’s Tuna Salad!
I like to use an old fashion potato masher. It takes less time for me to smash them.
The sandwich is ready to eat.
Add some mandarin oranges to your lunch. Enjoy!
