Tuna & Egg Salad – How To Make Tuna Salad With Eggs
What do you do when you can’t decide whether to serve tuna salad or egg salad? Make Tuna & Egg Salad! Here’s how to make tuna salad with eggs.
Or at least it’s how I do it. It’s just a nice combination of egg salad and tuna salad.
Even before I made this for the first time I thought to myself what a great idea! Of course, there’s nothing new in the world and I quickly found recipes for it on the net!
This is my version of a combination of the recipes I found. As it turns out it’s one of the best salads of this type I’ve ever made. At least that’s what my neighbor says.
She loves it and I think she’s hooked. Since I almost always have all the ingredients on hand that means it goes into my regular rotation!
Tuna Egg Salad Ingredients
If you’ve ever made tuna salad or if you’ve ever made egg salad then making tuna egg salad is not gonna’ be anything new for you. This recipe is really just a combo of the two. Classic tuna salad and creamy egg salad
Other than the eggs and the tuna these are some of the things I almost always include:
- Sweet or dill pickle relish
- Diced onion
- Diced Celery
- Garlic powder
- Mustard (sometimes)
Of course, you can add or subtract from these ingredients according to you and your family’s taste. If you use these you can also adjust the amounts. You might like more or less than I do.
This is also your chance to get a little creative. Sprinkle in some herbs, such as fresh or dried thyme leaves. Old Bay seasoning or lots of black pepper might be something you would like.
One thing I especially like to do is finely dice the vegetables. I like the flavor and texture the onions and celery add but I don’t like to crunch down on a big ole piece of either!

How to Serve Tuna & Egg Salad
I can eat this stuff right out of the bowl with just a fork. But I only do that when I’m making it. You gotta’ taste test right?
I guess the ideal would be as a sandwich spread. That’s what most people think of when they’re thinking about tuna salad or egg salad. You can really spruce it up by using good bread like a croissant or rye bread. I love it on rye bread!
A sandwich on rye with potato chips and I’m a happy camper! Great additions to a sandwich could include lettuce, tomato, jalapenos, banana peppers, green peppers, olives, salt/pepper. Perfection.
It also works really well as a spread on crackers. I keep regular saltines all the time and that makes a nice snack. But once again variety kicks things up a notch.
The grocery shelves are loaded with different types of crackers and something a little different is a nice thing sometimes. A recent discovery of mine is Flipsides crackers and they’re perfect with the salad.
I often make a meal from a bagged salad blend from the grocery and this tuna egg salad. Just pile some of the salad blend in a bowl and top with the tuna salad. Alongside I like to have pickles, olives, potato chips, and maybe a big ole hunk of sharp cheddar cheese.
Well, there it is. What do you think? Will you make Tuna & Egg Salad?
