Salad – with Tuna

on February 17, 2014

Today’s recipe is one of those that I’m going to put under the category of Retro Oddities (my daughter came up with that title).

This one has got to come from the 70’s.

The card says Salad but I’ve renamed it Salad – with Tuna, because I’m sure that there will be more recipes simply named Salad.

I remember having this at family gatherings, and I remember that it was not my favorite.

That’s because I’m not a fish girl and tuna is fish.

Sometimes I can do it and sometimes I can’t.

I made this salad when my family was all here so the fish eaters could help eat it.

The 5 ingredients sound a bit odd.

We should know better – never question Grandma’s recipes.

Everyone liked it!


You’ll note that it does have the “V Good” connotation!

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Salad – with Tuna

Mix together:

1 can of tuna, drained

1 cup carrots, shredded

1 cup celery, chopped

1 cup mayonnaise

This mixture can stand overnight  – nice to be able to make it ahead.

Then add 1 small can of shoestring potatoes, or half of a big can.

That’s it!

Incredibly easy!


The first four ingredients are pretty easy to pull together.


This salad maybe took 10 minutes to make, start to finish.


Shoestring potatoes seems like an odd thing to add to a salad, but they add a nice crunch.


This is perfect for a nice, light lunch.
