Nana's Tuna Salad

When I was a young girl I remember going to my Mothers pantry and there would always be a can of Tuna and a can of Salmon. She said that was her emergency food in a can, and so it was. More than once I would see her go for those cans when unexpected company would stop by or when she needed to make a nice meal in a hurry. One of the recipes that I loved and still do to this day is the Tuna Salad. Although I have changed the recipe through the years to meet our families taste it is still the basic recipe that was passed on to me. So when you go to my pantry today there will always be a can of Tuna and Salmon and this is one of the recipes that I use. Sometimes we enjoy the Tuna Salad on a Lettuce leaf and then there is nothing better than a delicious Tuna Salad Sandwich.

    1. Hi Roseann,
      You can use either dried or fresh herbs, or one of each. If the dill is in my herb garden it will be fresh, but in the winter I use dried. My fresh parsley in the herb garden is good the year round. Hope you enjoy the Tuna Salad and thanks so much for stopping by!
