Here's another of those quick spreads that you might want to make ahead and put in the fridge for sandwiches this summer. (I know that folks either like tuna or they really don't like tune!). Also, you might be saying,"That's really basic to include in a cooking post!" But, in my defense, I've attended luncheons where the tuna salad wasn't a very good version. Another reason to post this is I have some young readers who want some basic recipes. My son, Blake, reads this blog and loves my tuna salad! Now he will have the recipe. Hope you enjoy it, too!
Marcia's Tuna Salad/Spread
Stir together these ingredients:
-3 cans of tuna, drained
-2 stalks of celery, finely chopped
-1/2 Vidalia or sweet onion, finely chopped
-2 sweet pickles, finely chopped
-Miracle Whip Salad Dressing (no substitutions!) Add enough dressing to make a creamy spreading consistency for sandwiches, or make it a little dryer if you plan to mound it on top of lettuce for a salad. Chill in the refrigerator in a container with a tight lid. (This is also very good spread on Townhouse or Ritz crackers as a snack!)
