Tuna Fish Salad Judys Foodies Way!


Tuna Fish Salad can be made so many ways & is so versatile to have on hand. Anything from a simple sandwich to serve on crackers & toss salads, or like I am having tonight with my Amish Potato Soup, as a Tuna Melt. I like a crisp & crunchy tuna salad that has layers of flavor. 

1, 12 oz Can Tuna Fish
3 TBS Chopped Onion
2 Ribs Celery Chopped
2 Hard Boiled Eggs Chopped
2 TBS Chopped Dill Pickle
2 TBS Parsley Chopped
1 TSP Old Bay Seasoning ( Crab & Shrimp Seasoning)
1/2 Cup or more of Mayonnaise

Stir everything together & chill at least 4 hours. DELICIOUS! For Tuna Melt I use a good roll or sandwich bun. On bottom of the bun I lay about 6 baby spinach leaves. top that with 1/4 cup tuna salad. Lay one slice of tomato over tuna salad & then one slice of provolone cheese over the tomato. Wrap sandwich loosely in foil & bake 20 minutes in a 350 degree oven ! Serve hot & with a cup of soup you have a GREAT MEAL!
