Tasty Tuna Salad

Last weekend our friend Travis came down to the lake house and spent the weekend with us. I love it when he stays with us because one of his favorite things to do is cook. Which means HE cooks for US! Yay!

I have always been a fan of tuna fish, but have never actually had tuna salad. I've always just mixed it up with some mayo and considered it good to go. Travis changed that for me! His tuna salad is super yummy and way easy! Here is how to make it:

2 cans of tuna, drained
3 hard boiled eggs, diced (he discarded 2 of the yolks which I loved because I'm not a yolk fan)
A spoonful of sweet pickle relish
*Here's the kicker* Ranch dressing until it looks really moist.

I made it for lunch today and I did half mayo and half Ranch dressing. It's tangier if you use all Ranch dressing.

I love easy, simple recipes! Especially since I'm not the kind of gal who can look at her pantry and just whip something up. Cookbooks and recipes are my saving grace!

That sounds DELISH! I just finished a tuna salad sandwich but I've always used dill pickles and just mayo. I will definitely be trying out the ranch with sweet pickle relish next time.
