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.

  • 2 cans (5 ounces each) white water-packed tuna, drained

  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted

  • Bread slices or lettuce leaves

"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."
