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
I was born and raised in NJ, first in Hunterdon County, later relocating to Monmouth County, and finally I am in Northern Ocean County. I work In Middlesex County and went to college in Mercer County. Whew... Therefore, I have knowledge of much of the Garden State. I am passionate about food; especially local foods. I have been addicted to farm markets since I was very young. I have a great husband and two of the best daughters anyone could wish for. NJ is an epicurean's delight! I would love your comments and questions.
