I hated Tuna Fish as a kid and now I love it! I finally created a recipe for Tuna I like. It can convince any non-Tuna lover to cross over."Love the recipe. The Adobo and dill pickles provided for a tasty zip that my plain version of this was sorely missing. I substituted celery for the green pepper (my taste preference) and it was still fabulous.
