In this recipe, canned tuna is combined with mayonnaise, celery, cottage cheese, capers, parsley, and some lemon juice. At first I wasn't too sure about the cottage cheese but it gave the tuna salad flavor and texture. The one change I made in this recipe was substituting onion powder (1 teaspoon) for the diced onions. I am not a fan of onions in my sandwiches.
This was one of the best recipes for tuna salad. In fact, it has become my go to recipe. Try it, I think you will enjoy it.
