This tuna salad salad with pickled celery will have you rethinking all other tuna salads you’ve had before, because it is so so good, honestly the best tuna salad I’ve had! Enjoy this tuna salad as a lunch on a sandwich or as a dip with some buttery crackers.
A few weeks ago I signed up for a local produce box to be delivered. I got a bunch of celery. Then the next week I got more celery.
So what do you do with celery? What are recipes that use celery? I was completely drawing a blank.
I did, and oh my goodness was it amazing.
Side note: since we are all home with schools-daycare temporarily closed, my 2 year old son, Ben, helps with my photoshoots and recipe development days, it’s beyond cute so I just had to share this little picture I snapped of him helping me.
I thought of making a chicken salad (my favorite chicken salad recipe), but my favorite chicken salad recipe doesn’t have celery in it and I just so happened to have some canned tuna, so my mind immediately went to tuna salad.
With quick pickled celery, this tuna salad went from me thinking tuna salad was just ok, to me thinking oh my goodness, I need to make tuna salad with pickled celery every single time I make it!!
Something else I did unique with this tuna salad recipe is that I used green onions instead of chopped raw red onions. I find that raw onions are a little overpowering, so adding green onions gave it a nice flavor, while not being overwhelming to the taste buds.
Next time you’re looking for an easy lunch and the best tuna salad recipe, look no further than this tuna salad with pickled celery!
