Featuring: Beaux’s Ultimate Tuna Salad

I am really enjoying doing this site (as many of you clearly know this).  I’m enjoying the connections I am forming with new people who read my blog, as well as finding new blogs to read myself.  I stumbled across this one blog.  You’ve heard me mention it here before… Holy Poached Egg.  The guy that runs it has been extremely helpful, and he has a very fun blog to read on Southern Food and Friends.  One of the first posts I read of his talked about this infamous Tuna Salad that he makes.  Supposedly so good, and as the hub says, it’s so good it’ll make ya wanna slap your momma.  Keyword in that previous statement…”wanna” not “goin’ to”.  Just wanted to make that clear.  I had asked him before for the recipe, but he’s held out on me…until the other day.  He finally posted it!  Of course, there was a grocery store trip today, and of course I bought the ingredients to make Beaux’s Ultimate Tuna Salad. 

I’m just going to show you pictures below.  You will have to visit his site to see the exact amounts of each ingredient.  The only thing I didn’t have…was celery seeds.  He specifically states this is an important ingredient.  So, the next time I make it, I will make sure I have those on hand.  When I served it with some Whole Wheat Ritz Crackers, I sprinkled a little Smoked Paprika on top of it.  A very nice touch to the fishiness of the tuna.  He also says to let the flavors meld overnight, but I couldn’t wait til overnight.  We tried it immediately after prep, and will take some to work tomorrow for my entertainment and enjoyment.  I also didn’t have any pickle relish, so I went to the corner of Cucumber and Vine and finely chopped some Mt. Olive Kosher Dill Pickles from right here in North Carolina.  You could also substitute chicken for tuna if you wanted.  It was super delicious and highly recommended!  Enjoy!
