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

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!
