Helpful hints

  • Make ahead and chill so flavors blend. You can substitute chicken for tuna, it’s just as yummy.
  • Analysis includes regular mayonnaise. If regular reduced-fat is used fat equals 14 grams per serving but sodium increases to 293 mg.

Southwest Tuna Salad
crinkster says:

It's a perfect salad for those of us in the southwest used to the taste of cilantro (and jalapeños). The problem I have with most recipes is having many of the ingredients on hand. I can always find cilantro and jalapeño peppers in my grocery store (it's primarily a Latino community) but things like limes are difficult because it's a seasonal fruit (and buying a container of lime juice is a waste). I find similar problems with most of the Davita for one and needing just a tablespoon of this or that is neither practical nor affordable.

Southwest Tuna Salad

My parents loved this salad. Because there were three of us I doubled the tuna and the mayo and added 1 cup of celery, bringing the potassium level up to 240 per cup. But it was delicious!
