So, I'll be showing today a tuna salad. So, what you'll need for this is 1 12-ounce can of solid white tuna or 1 14 and 3/4-ounce can of salmon drained, flaked, and skin and bones removed; Half a cup of chopped celery; a 1/4 cup of thinly sliced green onions; 3 tablespoons of chopped sweet pickles; a 1/3 cup of mayonnaise or salad dressing, we'll be using mayonnaise today; 1 tablespoon of lemon juice; 2 teaspoons of snipped fresh dill or 1/2 teaspoon of dried dill, which we'll be using today. Alright, so first things first, let's get on with this quick recipe. So, into our bowl goes our tuna, nice and flaked, our pickle goes in there too. That's gonna give a nice sweetness and crunch to our salad. Our chopped celery goes in there too. That's gonna give a give a lovely crunch to the whole salad and of course, our lovely green onions. That's gonna taste fantastic. So, give that a good stir and then get those tuna flakes all evenly spread out. So, there you go, really, really quick and so easy.

Alright, so once that's all stirred in, let's get together our mayonnaise, our lemon juice, and our dill, and dill is fantastic herb to use on any seafood, really, but for this one, it works especially well. So, let's stirred that all in, and that dill is so just smell so good and as I said with salmon, with seafood, and this time with tuna. It's just gonna be a fantastic accompaniment. So, once all that is in there nicely, all we gonna do is add it to our tuna mix like so. You can add a little bit of salt in there if you want to just to give it a little bit more extra flavor, get all of that mixed together. Oh, look at that, I could that from the spoon I am mixing it in right now just looks so good, but the best thing to do is you cover this now.
