Barbie's Tuna Salad Recipe
Curry and Parmesan cheese are the secret ingredients in this tuna salad recipe! I have never tasted another tuna salad like it.
Very good tuna salad recipe! I cannot understand why some people don't follow the recipe or don't like an ingredient or two, then give the recipe a poor rating. I changed a few things because of mine and my family's tastes. I added some hard boiled eggs, more onion, a dash of yellow mustard and a pinch of tarragon. I usually do a little tweaking to most recipes I as I've been cooking for 40 years and know what my family likes. But if a recipe I've seen here doesn't turn out well and I have altered it, I would NEVER come here and give it a poor rating since I changed it! We LOVE this tuna salad and I would never have thought to use some of the ingredients in it (such as Parmesan and curry powder), so THANK YOU TANAQUIL!
This is not a good tuna salad recipe in my opinion. The ingredients seemed off... too much mayonnaise... too much parsley and the combination of ingredients did not taste well together.
This was really great! I modified it a bit: 2 cans of tuna, 1 tsp of creole seasoning, left out curry, dill, parsley, and kept the rest the same. Very good. I served this in a green pepper for dinner and it was a hit.
Barbie I have to hand it to ya - you've taken tuna salad to whole new level. This stuff is really, really good. I normally don't like sweet pickle relish in tuna salad, but for some reason it works here. I used 1/4 tsp. of dried minced onion flakes and was a bit liberal with the garlic powder. I also added a bit of salt and pepper. I have to say, this is probably one of the best tuna salads on this site. It was so good I whipped up a second batch and made a sandwich for my husband to take to work tomorrow. He's not a huge tuna salad fan, but I bet this will turn him into one. Thanks for a great recipe!
I searched for a tuna salad recipe that was a little different from the norm. I doubled this recipe and found that the taste was just ok, but easily modified to be GREAT! First of all, I would cut down on the amount of relish and parsley and add a little more cheese. I used fresh onion since I don't keep minced dried onion in the house. It took about 2 Tbl of the onion to make it "show up" in the taste of this recipe. That's 2T total for this recipe DOUBLED. I know I will make this again, but with a few little tweaks that I mentioned. Also, don't be afraid of the curry. It is excellent in this dish!
I absolutely loved this recipe! I've been looking for a long time for a tuna salad recipe that I truly like and this is it! Way to go!
