Easy Cheesy Tuna Salad

Easy Cheesy Tuna Salad

This tuna salad is a great new take on a classic recipe. Don't worry, this tuna still has all the old standbys like mayo and mustard, but it's made even better with the addition of parmesan cheese and capers.

  • 1 can albacore chunk tuna in water
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated parmesan or romano cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Grey Poupon classic mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon capers


  1. Press as much water out of the tuna as you reasonably can, and flake it into a bowl.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and toss gently until well-combined but not mashed.
  3. Serve inside hollowed-out tomatoes, on lettuce, or with lettuce (and tomato if desired) on wheat bread, or however you like.

I love tuna salads. Tuna is really good for you. What I typically like to do is eat feta cheese in my tuna salads. Sometimes I add a bit of ketchup to my mayonnaise and make a 1000 island sauce. I also add in chunks of hard boiled egg. Yummy.
