This recipe serves two, but it’s easy enough to double or even triple to serve larger families.
- 1 (5-ounce) can tuna packed in water
- 1 rib celery, diced
- 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 1 teaspoon finely chopped red onion
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- Pinch of salt
- Pinch of black pepper
1 Drain the tuna: Open the can and hold it over the sink. Tilt the can and press on the lid to allow the water in the can to drain.
2 Mix the tuna salad: In a bowl, break the tuna up with a fork. Add the celery, mayonnaise, onion, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine. Taste and adjust seasoning to your liking. Chill or use immediately.
3 To serve: Spoon tuna salad onto slices of bread to make a sandwich, scoop onto crackers for a snack, or serve it atop a bed of salad greens.
