Raw onion in salads is too much for me, even if diced ever so finely.

Well, if you wouldn't know its there, why use it?
I think I was traumatized once when I got a tuna sandwich at Panera, and they had put a bunch of mustard on it.

Try adding some mango chutney. If it's too thick/chewy, give it a rough chop before adding it.

I saw a tip about the onion....maybe on this thread....lol I cant remember......while fixing the other ingredients soak the onion in some white vinegar....to take the edge off the raw onion taste. I haven't tried it but intend to.

I thought the same thing....when I had a cat the juice from tuna or salmon mixed with some broken up white bread was a favorite meal.......Now I have a dog who can smell a can of tuna being opened from 2 rooms away......He loves the juice on his kibble.

But aside from the pets.....it sounded like a good idea and it would stretch a can of Tuna.

I tried putting just a little bit of relish in my tuna salad today. I am liking it a lot. I'm going to try some of the herbs suggested here too. Just goes to show you can improve on a good thing.

Making many different non mayo based potato and tuna salads your premise mita would only be true part of the time for my family.

Example just made a warm German red potato salad last weekend that was nowhere close to my standard tuna salad recipe.

Like wise this week we made a batch of tuna with EVOO in place of the mayo and had none of the traditional American additions but was very mediterranean in its composition.

My cat would wake up from a deep sleep at the sound of the can opener just starting to open the tuna. Hadn't even smelled it yet.
