Cranberry Almond Tuna Salad


This simple recipe is based on a Chicken Salad my mom, Debbie became known for when we were growing up.  The secret ingredient is the curry powder, adding extra flavor without having to use a lot of salt.  I can make two pyrex conatiners for us to take to work in less than 10 minutes.  So easy and refreshing!

  • 1 can Albacore White Chunk Tuna (in water is best)
  • 2 celery stalks, roughly chopped
  • 10 grapes, green or red, halved long-ways
  • 1/4 cup almonds, chopped
  • 1 T dried cranberries
  • 2 T mayonnaise
  • 1/2 t curry powder
  • s + p
  1. Strain tuna, flake into medium-size mixing bowl.  Combine all ingredients.  Mix lightly, being sure not to smash the grapes.
  2. Season with s + p to taste.
  3. To keep the sandwiches fresh, I package the tuna salad seperately from the bread, cheese and lettuce.
  4. When it's lunch time, add the salad to the sandwich. Or, for a simple tuna melt, I remove the lettuce, add the salad to the bread and top with cheese.  Use a toaster oven to melt the cheese.  Add the lettuce, and enjoy!
