There are certain things from my childhood that I brought with me into adulthood. You know what I’m talking about – those things that bring you happy memories, so you continue doing them, or having, or whatevering them… meaning they’re still a part of your life.
For me, the list of childhood things includes many of Mom’s recipes. All of them were favorites back then, and they still are today. I could rattle off a whole list without trying, but I think most of you would rather I stay closer to the point. So I’ll just say that Mom’s tuna salad still makes me smile.
1 can (5-6 oz.) white tuna packed in water
2-1/2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1-1/2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
2 tablespoons finely minced onion
Pepper to taste
Lettuce and tomato (optional)
In a small bowl, break up tuna into itty-bitty pieces. (That’s a technical term for really, really small.)
Add mayo, pickle relish and onions. Stir with a fork to thoroughly combine.
Add pepper to taste. Stir it all up again so the pepper gets to know everything else, and everything gets happy.
Do I really need to tell you how to make a sandwich? If so, email me and we can set up lessons. For a very small fee.
By the way, this tuna salad is also great in a tomato for a lighter meal.
I hope you have fun with this one. And I hope it brings a smile to your face as you remember your own happy childhood days. And, most of all, I hope you:
Play with your food!
