Tips for a Perfect Egg Tuna Salad:

  1. Use good-quality canned tuna for the best taste. Tuna packed in water is a healthier choice and lets the natural flavors of the tuna shine through.
  2. Make sure to drain the tuna well to prevent the salad from becoming too watery.
  3. You can prepare hard-boiled eggs in advance to save on prep time. They stay good in the fridge for up to one week.
  4. Adjust the amount of mayonnaise and mustard according to your taste. Some like their tuna salad creamy, while others prefer it drier.
  5. If you want to add a crunch to your salad, consider adding finely chopped pickles, bell peppers, or even a handful of chopped nuts or seeds.
  6. The salad can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
