Too Damned Easy Utilitarian Tuna Salad

     Everybody should have a couple recipes in their personal repertoires that are super easy to put together. Something that takes virtually no effort. I'm talking something you should be able to do blindfolded.
Like this, except cooking blindfolded would be an actual useful skill.
     For me, one of those recipes is tuna salad. I picked this recipe up from watching my mom make it. It's not exactly like hers. My mom makes it with a bit more Miracle Whip, so it's creamier. She also likes to put in a chopped hard-boiled egg. This particular tuna salad does very well on sandwiches and leaves plenty of room to mess around with the recipe. Add, subtract, do what you want. If you don't already have a go-to tuna salad recipe, this should be a solid template to work from. As always any notes will be in blue.

Too Damned Easy Utilitarian
Tuna Salad

  • 1 rib celery, diced small
  • 1/2 large or 1 medium sweet onion, diced
  • 3 cans tuna in water, drained
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise (or Miracle Whip, or whatever ersatz mayo substitute you enjoy)
  • 1 teaspoon pickle relish
  • 1/2 teaspoon yellow mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3 dashes Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 chopped hard-boiled egg, optional
  • salt and pepper to taste

  1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Stir until all ingredients are combined (that's it. There is literally nothing more to preparing this recipe).  
Good times!
