Classic Tuna Salad

Prep Time 15 minutes


  • 2-3 cans of high-quality tuna or 1 lb of your homemade tunafish
  • 4 T diced celery
  • 6-7 T high quality mayonnaise
  • 2-3 T Dijon or other good mustard
  • 1-2 t finely chopped dill
  • 1/2 a medium onion finely chopped
  • 1 T finely chopped parsley optional
  • 1/4 t cayenne optional
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Flake the tuna into chunks. If you bought it oil-packed, as I recommend, let it be coated in oil. Don't wash the tuna.
  2. Mix the tuna with all the other ingredients in a bowl. Test for salt and add it to taste.
