Tuna and Egg Salad

Now honestly, I guess I wouldn't generally post about making something as simple as an egg salad, or here, tuna and egg salad. Or, maybe I would {scratches head} dunno... but, it is Lent afterall and I'm tryin' to do my best to stay away from meat on Fridays and so, I wanted some tuna and egg salad for lunch - so I figured what the heck.

It sure brings back a lot of memories to back in the day, my first apartment all on my own, and eating a lot of tuna and egg salad and tuna noodle salad. I could mix up a big batch of that noodle salad (which is this plus some elbow mac), and literally eat on it for days, making it pretty budget friendly. Sometimes I'd add in the boiled eggs, sometimes I'd leave out the pickles, and frankly, just macaroni, tuna, onion and mayo with some basic seasonings, most of the time.

Then ... I got to wondering ...

... do most folks go with sweet pickles or dill pickles? Or do they even put pickles in their tuna salad at all?

I know. I'm such a deep thinker.

But seriously, as I was puttin' mine together, which I always do the same way, all the time, all my life, I got to really wondering how do other people make their tuna salad? Afterall, folks do land here from the interwebs looking for recipes for egg salad, tuna salad and tuna noodle salad.

How do you do your tuna salad Are you a sweet pickle person? Or a dill pickle person? Or ... no pickles at all person?
