The right way to Make It:

My favourite tuna salad is a mix of a 5oz can wild-caught albacore tuna, drained, plus 3-Four Tablespoons mayonnaise (I exploit Hellman’s Vegan Mayo for Gwen,) 2 minced pickle spears, and 1/Four teaspoon steak seasoning. Sure, steak seasoning! It’s obtained all the good things. We use a mix from a butcher store in DC (they don’t promote it anymore however I’ve a copycat recipe here) although you may merely use salt and pepper or homemade seasoning salt as a substitute.

That is our FAVORITE tuna, by the way in which. It’s fairly expensive on the common grocery retailer however Costco sells them in a stack for an ideal value. All the time an ideal concept to seize one when you may!

Scoop the tuna salad between two slices of buttered bread (I’m at the moment obsessive about Franz Gluten Free Bread – one other Costco staple of mine!) with a slice of cheddar cheese then cook dinner on a griddle or in a skillet over medium warmth till sizzling and golden brown on each side. OH MY WORD, such a wonderful step up out of your customary tuna salad sandwich. I hope you like this easy, scrumptious dish – take pleasure in!
