Tuna salad is a quick, easy, satisfying lunch or snack

Mike Thayer 2016 (2)By Mike Thayer

Tuna is a bachelor's friend, it's cheap, easy to prepare and can be used in a number of 'Bachelor Friendly' recipes.

Today, it's tuna salad.  Needing only a five minute preparation, if that, you can make a quick tuna salad in the morning before work to be eaten for lunch, or make it the night before for a snack or lunch the next day, five minutes in the kitchen, that's it.


  • One 5 - 6 ounce can of tuna (I like tuna packed in oil, better flavor)
  • One heaping Tablespoon of mayonnaise
  • One Tablespoon dried, minced onion
  • One teaspoon sweet pickle relish
  • 1/2 teaspoon of your favorite seasoning salt


This isn't rocket science, in a small bowl, mix all ingredients together.   I like to make this hours ahead of time and refrigerate to give that dried minced onion time to absorb some moisture and let those flavors marry.

This quick  tuna salad is great all by itself, or you can slap it on a couple slices of bread if you're not on a low-carb diet.  Served on a leaf of romaine lettuce is another option.  You can change things up by sprinkling some shredded cheddar cheese on top, or get out the bottle of Louisiana Hot Sauce and doctor it up with that.  Enjoy!   And enjoy the fact that all ingredients together cost less than $1!
