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

"This was delicious! I am not a fan of tuna, but I enjoyed this recipe. The only substitution I made was green onion for the yellow onion just as a personal preference. Will definitely make this again."
