We're seriously excited about this neat way to "pump up" your potato salad recipe. Add some celery, peppers, dill, and the secret ingredient: tuna! Mix it all together and our "Pumped Up" Potato Salad is a totally new take on old-fashioned potato salad.

What You'll Need

  • 6 large white potatoes
  • 2 (6 ounce each) cans tuna in water, drained and flaked
  • 1 cup chopped celery (2 stalks)
  • 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/3 cup chopped scallions (1 to 2 scallions)
  • 2 cups mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

What to Do

  1. Place potatoes in a large pot and add just enough water to completely cover them. Bring to a boil and cook 35 to 40 minutes or until potatoes are fork-tender; drain and cool.
     
  2. Peel potatoes and cut into 1-inch chunks; place chunks in a large bowl and add remaining ingredients. Mix until potatoes are completely coated.
     
  3. Cover and chill at least 2 hours before serving.

Notes

If you want, you can even cook the potatoes a day before making the salad this will cut down on the time needed to chill the salad before serving.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

For those picky eaters out there try using canned chicken.

I have also made this with cut up tomato and cucumber and instead of Tuna I used the imitation crabmeat

I HAVE NEVER MADE POTATO SALAD WITHOUT EGGS BEFORE, BUT I AM GOING TO TRY THIS RECIPE BECAUSE IT SOUNDS REALLY GOOD. THANKS FOR POSTING IT! I ALWAYS LIKE TO TRY SOMETHING NEW WHEN COOKING. :-)

I will be using this recipe,my grandsons love tuna ad they are 3 and Eightteen months. It good for them and I like to try new stuff thanks mel

There are no more 6 oz cans of tuna. You can get 7 oz at Costco.

Thank you, Judy Trudy! I don't know why people rate a recipe that they don't even try?? And they give it STARS for how "yummy" it SOUNDS!?!

yummy

ihave used chicken breast instead of tuna and my family loves it .

I omitted the vinegar and added more scallions. I added chopped cooked eggs and 1 Tablespoonful of dijon mustard to the mayonnaise. It was great!

then you're saying that you used your recipe and you don't know how this one tastes?
