Sweet Hot Tuna Salad with Grapes for #TheSaladBar

Recipe: Sweet Hot Tuna Salad with Grapes

Sweet Hot Tuna Salad with Grapes on Shockingly Delicious. Not Your Mother's Tuna Salad! [1]Summary: This is not your mother’s tuna salad! Spicy, sweet, crunchy and packed with flavor and texture, this is perfect atop greens or tucked between toasted bread for a sandwich.


  • Lettuce: mix of spinach and arugula, or your choice of greens


  1. In a mixing bowl, add tuna and its oil, and mayonnaise. Mix to combine and slightly break up the tuna. (I do this in my KitchenAid Mixer on low, for a few seconds, but you can do it by hand; suit yourself.)
  2. Add celery, grapes and shallot, and stir by hand to combine.
  3. Place clean greens on a plate, and pile tuna salad atop, or make a sandwich out of this by toasting bread and packing the tuna salad between slices of bread. Your choice!
  4. Serves 4.
