Tuna Salad with Raisins and Walnuts

A tuna salad that’s bursting with flavors and textures from sweet to savory and creamy to crunch.

Tuna Salad with Walnuts on plate

Sometimes a tuna salad sandwich can really hit the spot.

In this tuna salad there’s a little bit of crunch, a bit of sweet and a bit of savory flavor.

The crunch comes from chopped celery, onion and walnuts; the sweet comes from raisins and the savory flavor comes from fresh dill.

The combination of flavors 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 chicken into cubes and make the salad in the same way minus the tuna.

Here’s another recipe for chicken salad you may like “Dill and Toasted Almond Chicken Salad with Grapes“.

  1. wee! all my faves in one recipe… tuna, celery, raisins… gonna try it today for my girl’s meet. thanks for the recipe!

  2. Squaw is one of my all time favorite breads and works beautifully with your glammed up tuna salad sandwich…lovely!

  3. Just looks amazing, and so simple.

  4. looks yummy, i could imagine i’m biting the walnuts! is it wheat breads in the pic?

    • Hi Endy, this is a type of wheat bread call “squaw bread”. I used it for this sandwich because the color is a little darker than the regular wheat bread. It’s got a sweet taste to it.
      Have a great rest of the weekend!

  5. It wasn’t until I travelled to the US that I discovered the wonder of a proper tuna salad sandwhich. I used to buy the best sandwiches from a food cart in Philadelphia which served it on rye, with a thick layer of tuna with gerkins (cornichons) salt and pepper and fresh tomato – it was sooo delicious. I used to sneak it in the library and eat it in the stacks (ancient history – where no one went). This recipe looks great. I might try it with some chopped pumpkin seeds to get a shot of magnesium.

    • The tuna sandwich on rye with gerkins and tomato sounds delicious. Sounds like a great idea to add the chopped pumpkin seeds….I’m actually going to try that next time I make it. Love the idea of healthy additions to this recipe.
