We came across the recipe on the Food52 website where it is baptized as your best tuna salad. Although it is very reminiscent of the filling of the tuna sandwich whose recipe we published a few months ago – and which we also highly recommend – this salad is even easier to prepare.


Discard the oil from the tuna can (which you can use for other preparations) and pour it into a bowl.

Add finely chopped onion and coriander and mix everything well with the rest of the ingredients. Do not add salt, because it will already contain the mayonnaise (better if it is homemade) and the fish sauce.

Easier impossible.
