I did not grow up eating canned tuna. And I recall smelling a tuna salad sandwich back in middle school and being utterly disgusted. It smelled like cat food. And I couldn't get over it. Not until about a year ago. To be honest, I still smell cat food when I pop open a can of tuna. But, I have decided to move past the smell.
So a few weeks ago, I decided it was time to make tuna salad at home. Fancy style. Along with celery, which apparently is a must, I added pickled onions, green onions, black olives, fancy dill mustard I bought during a recent wine-tasting trip and mayo. I seasoned well with salt and pepper, and made us sandwiched. The husband was impressed with my first-time tuna salad making skills. And so was I. I see more tuna salad in our future, with variations of course. I'll just task the husband with opening and airing out the cans first.
