Cranberry Tuna Salad

I love the cranberry tuna salad at Whole Foods!  It is addictive, which is something that I never would have thought that I would say about tuna salad.  While searching around, I discovered that I am certainly not alone and many have tried to recreate this salad.   I am not sure how close this came to the Whole Foods recipe but it sure was delicious.  There may not be dill in the Whole Foods recipe but I like the flavor.  I came across variations with additions of celery, carrots, lemon juice, parsley, and slivered almonds.  The combination of tuna and cranberries is so good! 

2 cans albacore tuna drained and finely flaked
Hellmann's mayonnaise to taste (I used about 1/3 cup)
1 small onion diced
1/3 tsp. dried dill
3 tablespoons dried cranberries


  1. I love this! The addition of the sweet-tart dried cranberries pretties the dish and adds sparkle to the taste buds.

  2. I never thought to add the cranberries...will try it.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

    My nephew Madden is 2 years old...such a cutie.


  3. That really looks delicious. I love the cranberry addition. Your photo captures the sandwich perfectly. Have a great day. Blessings...Mary

  4. Never would have occured to me to add cranberries to a tuna salad. I don't know why, because they are marvelous mixed into a chicken or turkey salad sandwich. This looks delish!

  5. Now, I know to put cranberries in my tuna salad. Awesome.

  6. Hmmm, cranberries in tuna...what a wonderful idea!
