Grown-Up Tuna Salad Recipe

Grown-Up Tuna Salad
Difficulty: Easy | Total Time: | Makes: 2 1/2 cups

This lunchtime classic is often lackluster and flavorless, so we’ve given it an overhaul here. First, we started out with high-quality ingredients like premium canned tuna; then we added fennel and lemon zest for a nice riff.

What to buy: Premium tuna packed in olive oil is paramount. We like Ortiz Bonito del Norte.

INGREDIENTS
  • 12 ounces high-quality imported tuna packed in oil, drained
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped fennel bulb
  • 1/2 cup Basic Mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped white onion
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fennel stems (no fronds, just green stems)
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped Italian parsley
  • 2 small garlic cloves, minced (about 3/4 teaspoon)
  • 2 dashes Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper, plus more as needed
  • Kosher salt
INSTRUCTIONS
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Taste and season with salt and pepper as needed.
