I have always loved tuna salad, let’s just say that it has always been my go-to sandwich. But I have to say that I love tuna egg salad a bit more than your everyday tuna salad.
I have been anticipating about getting back to blogging. I have to say that I have been putting it off for some time, I really didn’t want to be away for this long, but time has been flying by. Yeah, I would set a date when I would post my first post, but as the date approached I would push the date back a couple of more weeks.
You know with it being summer, well you know how that goes. Time working in the garden, weeds to pull in my flower beds, and long walks at night, and more… after working all day. So you can see why blogging was put on the back burner for a while.
Yes, I missed it and I do have to say that I am happy to be back.
Yep, I love sandwiches. Let’s just say I grew up on sandwiches. By choice of course. There was always homemade bread in my house when I was a kid. Homemade summer sausage was always in the refrigerator. I grew up on a dairy farm, so we never went hungry. Yes, I know how lucky I am, at least now, back then I took it all for granted.
Tuna was a special treat; we didn’t always have it in the pantry. Back then if I would have had a choice between a steak and a tuna fish sandwich I would have picked the tuna fish sandwich every time. Wow, that may be a little crazy, but it the truth.
It wasn’t until I grew up and married that I tried tuna egg salad. Let’s just say that it was love at first bite. We were visiting Mike’s family when my sister-in-law made tuna egg salad; I thought it to be a little weird until I tried it. YUM! I loved it.
It is still one of my favorite ways to eat tuna salad. I also love celery and onion for a little crunch and flavor with my tuna egg salad. The dill pickle relish… well I love pickles on a sandwich and the relish is a great touch to this sandwich.
As you can see by my pictures I love a lot of salad dressing with my tuna, but feel free to use less if you don’t care for the amount that I suggest.
- 1-5 ounce tuna packed in water
- 1 hard-boiled egg chopped
- 2 to 3 tablespoons chopped celery
- 2 to 3 teaspoons chopped onion
- 2 tablespoons pickle relish
- 1/3 cup mayonnaise/ salad dressing I use Miracle Whip
- Favorite bread
- Drain the water off of the tuna add to a medium bowl.
- Add the chopped hard-boiled egg, celery, onion, and pickle relish. Mix until well combined.
- Add the mayonnaise/salad dressing and mix.
- Spread a generous amount on a slice of bread, top with lettuce and another slice of bread.

I love tuna, and protein rich food. This salad sandwich looks utterly delicious and comforting too, Dawn.
I’ve had both tuna salad and egg salad, but never even thought to mix the two flavors. Brilliant! Gotta try this — thanks.

I’m glad you’re back, Dawn! I agree that it’s hard to stick to a schedule with blogging…but the routine is also kinda nice, ya know? Either way, I’m loving this tuna egg salad! I’m right there with ya on your love for sandwiches. I think I could eat sandwiches for lunch and dinner and be perfectly happy. There are so many awesome ways to mix ’em up! (Plus, I love bread!!) Anyways, this salad needs to show up in my kitchen. Like next week. For lunch. And maybe dinner, too. 🙂

Very cool to see you back. And good story about the tuna and egg. Have you ever done the garbanzo beans with mayo, celery and onion? Season to taste?
