Makes 2 cups
Like Buck's tuna salad at Whole Foods (pictured below), this is made in a mixer. Make two cans at once, so the beaters can whir the salad properly. The tuna should not be pureed or pasty, but a little flaky.
|2||cans (6 or 7 ounces each) albacore tuna in water|
|2||tablespoons finely chopped red onion|
|1||stalk celery, finely chopped|
1. Open the cans and working over the sink, use the tops of the cans to press all the water out of the tuna.
2. In a stand mixer, beat the tuna to break it up.
3. Add 3 tablespoons of the mayonnaise with the onion and celery. Beat again until the mixture comes together. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon mayonnaise, if you like.
