Albacore Tuna Salad Recipe

Albacore Tuna Salad Recipe

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.
