Morgan’s Tuna Salad

Hi, guest appearance by Dan’s assistant, Morgan, here. Struck by hunger, I whipped up this festive mayo based salad for Grossy and Gus on a weekday in April. Always one to put tuna salad on a pedestal, I knew I had to make this one shine. Fresh herbs, cucumber, and whole gherkins give this spread a star quality that makes the sun dim. If you don’t want sad tuna salad, this is the recipe for you! Best on a toasted baguette with cheese and mayo, but also eaten directly off the spoon. This recipe makes extra, because why make just enough when you could eat it for every meal!

Watch me make this recipe here.
