Do people put chopped apple in tuna salad? I have a vague recollection of some type of salad that had mayo and apples in it.

For example: in that tuna salad replace the tuna with mashed potatoes and that's what I was thought was potato salad growing up.
mmm i love tuna salad.

i mix:

drained flaked tuna
chopped red onion
chopped celery
white pepper
mayo


mmm mmm good!

I've also had tuna salad made with golden raisins. Usually also with curry.

I don't like mayo so I use a little vinegar and oil instead, and sometimes avocado to bind.

The handmashed hardboiled eggs sounds sooo good! I never ever thought of that.

For mustard, I like to experiment with different types spread on crackers or bread, not mixed in. I love mustard.

For those of you intrigued by the hard boiled eggs, you can also slice a few long ways and use them as garish for parties.
Its odd but its out of this world. It involves chinese noodles and olives and water chestnuts... its a great tuna salad for luncheons or company.
if anyone is interested I can post the recipe.

I like to put a little something sweet in my tuna salad, so I use chopped apple pieces, raisins, dried cranberries, or dried blueberries. Sometimes I add chopped nuts (any type...walnuts or almonds usually). And I always put in chopped celery and mayonaise. Toasted sesame seeds are a nice addition too.
Tuna, red onion, finely chopped celery, chopped hard boiled eggs, mayo, diced pickles or relish.

I was born to be a pessimist. My blood type is B Negative.
Sometimes I go traditional - mayo (or miracle whip), celery, onion, salt, pepper,

Lately I've been doing capers, olive oil, lemon juice, fresh parsley, shallots, garlic

Has anyone ever done cottage cheese with it? I've seen it on the internet but I'm too scared to try it.

Mine's pretty different than most, but I LOVE it and its so healthy and ridiculously filling. This is the one I have in my fridge now:

2 cans Tuna
1/3 cup Greek yogurt (its not sweet like reg. yogurt)
~2 Tbsp. Spicy brown mustard
~2 Tbsp. salsa
Celery
Dark red kidney beans
Bell peppers


...Usually I chop up whatever veggies I have in my fridge and throw em into a bowl with the tuna. Its so delish on a wrap or with lettuce in a salad!

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
