Apple Tuna Sandwiches Recipe

Apple Tuna Sandwiches Recipe

My husband and his buddies love to pack these tasty sandwiches when they go on fishing trips. The tangy tuna salad gets fun flavor from sweet pickle relish and lots of crunch from apples, celery and walnuts. The satisfying sandwiches are a complete meal in themselves. -Ivy Eresmas, Dade City, Florida
