There are so many great things about this recipe from Barbara Moravek of Jay, Florida! Sweet apples, golden raisins, celery, nuts, tuna and a tropical taste of pineapple add up to a simply wonderful salad. And leftovers are as delicious as the first bite. Sometimes Barbara substitutes grapes for the raisins.

"Simple to make. I didn't care for this particular fruit and tuna combination, but that may just be my taste. Perhaps chicken would be better, as another reader mentioned."

of tuna and spread it on rye bread. I got a lot
of compliments from my family."
