Tuna Salad

Tuna Salad

Ready in 25 minutes

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. Thank you for posting!"

Definitely! Celery is great too. I just really love Pickles and the brine on them adds a great flavor too!

Can you add celery instead of pickles?
