It is super delicious, fresh, and loaded with crunchy bits of yummy goodness, plus the SECRET INGREDIENT that makes my tuna salad so tasty.


  • 3 five-ounce cans of tuna (I use Wild Planet, don’t drain) or 2 seven-ounce cans of tuna, drained
  • 2 ½ tablespoons mayo
  • 2 teaspoons dill pickle relish (NOT sweet relish!!)
  • ½ teaspoon dried dill
  • 1 ½ tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • ½ medium shallot, finely diced
  • 1 stalk celery, finely diced
  • 1 small clove garlic, grated
  • zest of 1 lemon &  juice of ½ lemon


  1. Mix all ingredients together in a glass tupperware.
  2. Let flavors develop in the fridge for at least 3 hours or overnight if possible.
