Tuna-Egg Salad


I’m really not too moody today (I had a visit with my therapist ūüôā ) So not much to write for Moody Monday, ¬†but I did have a pretty good lunch. ¬†So I thought ¬†I would share my recipe for Tuna-Egg salad. Tuna-Egg salad sandwich¬† Thrown on some toasted Italian bread with a few lettuce leaves, it makes a very tasty sandwich! ¬†Here’s what to do.

  1. Boil 3 eggs.  (The best way I have found to boil eggs that come out easy to peel is to put them in a pot and cover with water.  Add about a tsp of vinegar.  Bring  to a boil.  Cover, turn off heat and let sit for 15 minutes.  Immediately transfer to a bowl and cover with ice.  Put in the fridge for about 10-15 minutes.)  After they are cooled, peel, chop and put into a bowl.
  2. Open a can of tuna and drain. ¬†( I used Trader Joe’s¬†albacore solid white tuna) Add to bowl.
  3. Chop up 1/2 stalk of celery and 1/2 an onion.  Add to bowl.
  4. Sprinkle with 1 tsp dill weed and some pepper.
  5. Add about 1/2 cup Hellman’s¬†mayonnaise.
  6. Mix well
  7. Make yourself a nice sandwich!
