Tuna Salad with Dill and Dried Cranberries

Classic tuna salad with a delectable dill and cranberry twist.

3-Dilly-Cranberry-Tuna-Boat

A really good tuna salad can hit the spot when you’re hungry or want something to eat that’s on the lighter side.

Just mixing tuna with mayonnaise tastes good together with the saltiness of the tuna and creamy texture of the mayonnaise.

The cool thing about tuna salad is that the ingredients can be tailored to your liking.

Combining the tuna and mayonnaise is like a clean slate, and the tuna salad just gets better from there.

Adding chopped celery, onions or sweet pickles gives tuna salad a bit of a crunch which makes it taste even better.

It wasn’t until I had a tuna sandwich at a deli that I discovered how wonderful dill tastes in tuna salad.

Since that time I always have to add in a little fresh or dried dill.

This tuna salad is made with dill, celery and dried cranberries which adds another level of flavor that’s a little tart and a little sweet.

All in all, a wonderful combination.

In this recipe solid white albacore is used but feel free to substitute that with the your preferred type of tuna.
