Tuna Salad, in a green bowl

I find that adding the onion, and the celery gives the salad a nice crunch!

Eat the bread toasted for a nice crunch, or leave the bread un-toasted for a soft bite.

What are the Different Kinds of Tuna Fish?

There are several different types of tuna fish, including albacore, bluefin, bigeye, and yellowfin.

Each type of tuna has its own unique flavor and texture. Additionally, the different types of tuna vary in terms of their fat content.

Ingredients for Tuna Salad with Dehydrated Vegetables

How to Make this Super Simple Tuna Salad

  2. Drain the tuna as best you can in the kitchen sink, use a sieve, or squeeze out excess water with your fingers/hands.
  3. Spoon out the mayo and sour cream in a dish and mix well with the celery and onion.
  4. Add the two cans of tuna, and blend in!
  5. Season with salt and pepper, and chill the tuna salad in the fridge.

What is the Nutritional Value of Tuna?

Tuna Salad Sandwich

Consider Using Tuna in Oil Too!

If you're not weight-watching and you prefer a little oil in your tuna salad, try this: use one can of tuna 'in water', and the other can of tuna fish 'in oil'. 

Tuna in Foil Pouches

Another option to be aware of is tuna packed in foil pouches... they're great! There's no excess water in the pouch, so to me, it's even more flavorful!

If using canned tuna, don't add ALL the oil (or water) as that will make it too soggy and we don't want it dripping out of the sandwich onto your clothing! :-)

Here is the link for the 'beginner' bread recipe which we have used over and over and it tastes awesome... and a link for Anita's Super Easy Bread, which is what I make all the time now! 

I LOVE it. With Anita's bread (in the link above), just mix the bread up in a bowl, leave it alone for 2 hrs, shape it, then bake it for 25 minutes. It doesn't get much easier than that! The hard part is actually waiting for the bread to cool down... :-)

If You're Into Tuna Steaks...

Here are some tasty seasoning suggestions for tuna steaks before grilling:

  • Lemon Pepper - The citrus and peppery spice is a perfect complement to the rich tuna flavor. Use some zest and juice along with cracked black peppercorns.
  • Soy Sauce & Brown Sugar - A quick marinade of soy sauce, brown sugar, minced garlic, and ginger lends a lovely caramelized flavor.
  • Cajun Spice - A Cajun or Creole seasoning blend adds warmth through spices like paprika, oregano, thyme, cayenne, and onion/garlic powder.
  • Fresh Herbs - Chopped fresh rosemary, thyme, oregano, and extra virgin olive oil makes a simple marinade, letting the tuna shine.
  • Teriyaki Sauce - Salty-sweet teriyaki sauce with toasted sesame oil and seeds marinates the tuna beautifully.
  • Lemon Herb Butter - Top grilled tuna steaks with seasoned lemon butter mixing fresh herbs into melted butter.
  • Caper Relish - Coarsely chop capers, parsley, and a bit of lemon zest makes for a tangy, briny relish topping.

Go light on thicker sauces to avoid overpowering the wonderful rich tuna flavor in the cooking process. Let the tuna marinate for 30 minutes up to 2 hours before grilling over high heat.

The best way to cook tuna depends on the type of tuna and your personal preferences. Tuna can be cooked rare, medium-rare, or well-done.

It can also be grilled, baked, poached, or seared.
