Simple Tuna Salad

Tuna salad with celery pieces in a glass bowl

This is my father-in-law’s recipe. It’s simple, but good! So good that even my almost-7-year-old likes it.


  • Can of tuna, in water
  • Light mayo
  • Celery (2-3 stalks)

Press all water out of the tuna. I do most of this by pushing the lid into the tuna when I open it, but my father-in-law also recommends squeezing the tuna out by hand.

Cut the celery into small bits. I find it easiest to cut down the middle of the celery first, then across.

Combine tuna and celery with ~2 tablespoons of light mayo, and voila! (Literally, that’s it; I didn’t even add salt or pepper, though certainly you might want to)

Particularly good with crackers or on bread.
