THE BEST Classic Tuna Salad Evah!

Love it or hate it, tuna salad is an essential recipe that any home cook should have in their repertoire.  This month I am sharing my tried-and-true recipe for the legit best classic tuna salad ever. Loaded with healthy protein, this recipe has an excellent ratio of creamy/crunchy textures and lots of acid to keep it bright…I promise you’ll love it.  

My husband’s favorite lunch is this tuna salad served on our favorite white bread (Dave’s Killer White Bread, thin-sliced) and I love to have a scoop with a green side salad and toasted pita….SO GOOD!

There are a couple of ingredients I swear by using – starting with Wild Planet Tuna (a great low-mercury, clean option). I buy this pack at Costco and it is a kitchen staple. I also swear by the Wickles Pickles brand relish – it is one of the cleaner options available. And I use my own lemon juice from my Meyer Lemon Tree (click here for how I make those lemons last all year…).

For a fun little change add a sprinkle of sumac before serving – not only does it add a beautiful dash of color, but also brings a tangy, lemony flavor, giving a bit of added interest.
