Below is a recipe for tuna salad from Christian Light Publications with pictures. The pictures are my own and I took them from home. I have made this recipe before with salmon and still thought it tasted great. I am not that picky though. Of course, the fresher the ingredients the better it tastes. Make sure to use the hard-boiled eggs within around three days. I once made the hard-boiled eggs in advance and had them sit for like a week, putting off making the recipe and they went bad and I had to toss them in the garbage. I found an egg slicer at the dollar store and it cuts hard-boiled eggs very nicely and I enjoy using it. Definitely worth the buy if you can find it and enjoy recipes like this tuna salad occasionally. Still, it is not necessary.
- 1 pkg (8 oz) cream cheese
- 3 hard-boiled eggs, chopped fine
- 1 can (7 oz) tuna, drained and flaked
- 1 t lemon juice
- 1/8 c minced onion

Soften cream cheese at room temperature for 1 hour. Cream the cream cheese and mix with other ingredients. Chill for one hour. Spread on sandwich buns or bread. Makes 4 – 6 sandwiches depending on size of buns.
