2 5-ouncecans of tunaI use Albacore
1stalk of celery diced
2tablespoonsred onion diced
1 1/2tablespoonsof fresh parsleydiced
salt and pepper to taste
Drain the liquid from the tuna cans. In a medium bowl, combine the tuna, mayo, Dijon, diced celery, diced red onion, parsley, and black pepper.
Stir all the ingredients until combined. Taste for salt and add if needed. Typically it's not necessary as tuna is salty on its own.
Enjoy the tuna salad as a sandwich, with crackers, over a bed of crunchy romaine as a salad.
If you want a creamier texture - you can always add more mayo. I'm not a huge mayo fan, so I use the bare minimum to add moisture and bind the salad together.
