I'm hosting a birthday party Sunday for my MIL and I'm thinking of serving chicken salad, tuna salad and egg salad and let them make their own sandwiches on crossiants, bakery bread or rolls. I need some good recipes for egg salad and tuna salad, these r older ladies think early 80's. I'm serving this with fresh fruit and a jello salad with a variety of desserts. How does this sound?

So what I need is good recipes!

Thanks

When I make egg salad I keep it very simple...eggs, mayo, celery, pepper, and some Lawry's (instead of regular salt)

When I make tuna salad for DH we just do tuna, mayo, and I usually add some celery and maybe some raw onions.

I do tuna 2 ways:

tuna
mayo
dill - fresh or dried
chopped pickle, celery or olives

OR (and this is our new favourite way)

tuna
diced red onion
a lot of pepper
1.5 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 tse mayo

Yummy.

I made both types for dinner last night, along with a lentil salad, toasted bagels, fruit plate, veggie plate with kale pesto dip, and a salad. The vinegar tuna is great on top of any green salad!

Barbie's Tuna Salad is our favorite tuna salad recipe. I make it with a little less mayo and parsley but otherwise the way it's shown.

For egg salad we just use mayo and mustard. Well, miracle whip. Anything that calls for mayo gets miracle whip instead.

I make both tuna and egg salad with yellow mustard instead of mayo, but most people seem to think that's weird. But aside from that, I add finely diced red onion, celery salt, and pepper to both. Sometimes I'll throw in shredded carrots or cucumber too.
