Tuna Salad Sort of a Classic Version

Servings: 4-6

Prep time: 5 minutes


  • 2 6-ounce / cans solid, water packed tuna
  • 1/2 cup / mayonaise
  • 1 cup / finely diced celery
  • 6 tablespoons / finely diced red onion
  • 6 tablespoons / finely minced red bell pepper
  • 4 tablespoons / drained capers
  • 2 teaspoons / lemon juice to taste
  • Kosher Salt and Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • Sliced sandwhich bread of choice
  • Optional 2 or 3 final diced dill pickles to taste


  1. In a medium bowl, combine the tuna, mayonnaise, celery, onion, bell pepper, capers and lemon juice. Mix with a fork until thoroughly combined. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve on the sandwich bread of your choice.
  2. Chef’s note: I put rough cut vegetables in the food processer and pulse several times to get nice small dice but don’t over process, taste and add as you please. Salad will be better after an hour or two and even better overnight.
