Very easy and quick to make! Before you know it, your salad will be ready in a jiffy. The first and most essential step is to gather all your necessary ingredients in one place. Place your eggs in a small pot containing cold water. Then set your timer for some minutes, the aim here is to ensure the water boils. The next thing to do is to turn down to simmer and cook your eggs until the timer goes. Drain off the hot water in a sink. For quick cooling down of your eggs, you might need to add cold water and ice cubes to the pot. Once your eggs cool down, peel and grate with a food grater or chop them into small pieces.
Once this is done, the next thing is to combine your tuna fish, chopped eggs, tablespoons of mayonnaise, red Dijon mustard, dill pickle that has been finely chopped and avocado cube. You might need to add more mayonnaise depending on how much you want it. Season it with salt and pepper to taste.

Additional tips you need to know is that the better the quality of your tuna, the better the tuna salad. Albacore chunk tuna salad will have a milder flavor and meatier texture. In contrast, flaked tuna tends to be moister with fishier taste. Better still, you can mix the two together. You can make use of aluminum foil to keep your food moist, to cook it evenly, and to make clean up an easy task.
