Too much mayo and the tuna wasn't drained enough.

OH, missbb, you are so right -- Costco's Kirkland brand rules! I don't eat ANY fish or seafood other than THIS tuna. Recently, we couldn't get to Costco & DH bought Bumble Bee "solid white albacore" -- YUK. Cat food for sure. Amazing.
As for the "recipe" requested by the OP a 100 years ago, I agree with the KISS method: mayo, salt, pepper .... maybe onion powder. Umm, umm good -- especially with tomato. Enjoy.

Yeah, it's moisture from the tuna thinning the mayo.

Nothing wrong with getting an extra one if you're grilling tuna steaks and making salad from that the next day.

Only thing I used to make either tuna or chicken salad is mayo and mustard, and toasted bread.
I'm getting older and prices are going nuts. This price change and product change happened not over night but in a very short time. Surprised not to have heard more complaints a few years ago.

I press the lid down in the can and squeeze the heck out of it. Got to be dry. No mustard for me either.

Well they put mustard on sardines who knows. Potato salad calls for both mustard and mayo. Just mayo for my tuna. I prefer light. Albacore has far less taste.
