Tuna Salad with Walnuts on plate

Sometimes a tuna salad sandwich can really hit the spot.

Tuna salad is delicious on its own but it’s even better when additional ingredients are added to the mix.

In this tuna salad there’s sweet and savory flavors plus a little crunch.

About this Recipe

The crunch comes from celery, onion and walnuts while the sweet comes from raisins.

And the dill gives this tuna salad a hint of savory flavor.

All of which are a wonderful complement to the salty, mild fish flavor of the tuna.

Although this tuna sandwich is made with squaw bread feel free to change the bread to wheat, a roll, a bun or your favorite sandwich bread.

This salad can also be made with chicken instead of tuna.

Just shred or cut leftover cooked chicken into cubes and make the salad in the same way minus the tuna.

About Serving

Serve this tuna salad on top of a green salad, as a sandwich, with crackers, opened faced on a toasted roll or bun, or just by its delicious self.
