Everytime I make a bowl of tuna fish it tastes bland. I go with Mayo, Albacore, scallions, sweet relish, salt and pepper and it still tastes like a newspaper....I want some jump, some life, some vigor. 
Please help me make a tuna salad sandwhich that I'm excited to eat.
Thanks fellerz.

add garlic and onions, subtract the salt and scallions, put a little bit of deli mustard on the bread, add a piece of cheese, and viola!
 
Sometimes I'll use ranch instead of mayo

You do need onions, that's true.
 
If you mix tuna, onion, mayo and relish or pickles, that's a nice sandwich right there.

Albacore, light mayo, onions, celery, finely chopped dill,and a dash of vinegar -that's my late grandmother's recipe ... toast up some multi grain bread , with some fresh tomato and lettuce and voila ..

To this I add a couple of  hard boiled eggs, chopped.

Hey, the chopped eggs may do the trick.
 
I'm off to the kitchen to experiment.

I prefer something sweet in the pickle category.
 
Some people like a little dill, but it all depends on your tastes.
 
If I can't get b&b pickles, I always get sweet peppers at least.
 
Lee's Hoagie House in Philly made the best tuna hoagie I ever had.
 
I used to love that sandwich.

Get married to a fat, ugly girl, and let her make the sandwiches.

I add real garlic. . .  the chopped kind you get in jars from Spice World or Christopher Ranch in your refrigerated produce section

Heres a few ideas as I used to experiment with Tuna since I work out and like the protein!

Combo 1: Tuna/Mayo/Chopped Up Hardboiled Eggs
Combo2: Tuna/Mayo put it on bread with a little lettuce, tomatoes, banana peppers, and red wine vinaigrette
Combo3: Tuna/Mayo/Salt/Pepper/Lemon Juice/A dash of vinegar
Combo4: The Tuna Melt, Fry up some bacon, put the Tuna/Mayo on the sammich with the Cheese and Mayo, and put it on a Foreman Grill or in a toaster!

I never realized how bad canned tuna was until I tasted some smoked stuff that a co-worker caught.........amazing difference. Real tuna is pretty damn good.

A number of you have mentioned hard boiled egg.  
 
 
I don't get that one.          Doesn't seem like those would be good together.

Very simple:

Chunk light tuna + cucumber + miracle whip on toasted white bread. With salt & vinegar chips on the side and a Sprite to drink
