Tuna Fish Special

THIS WAS my children's favorite salad when they were growing up. Whenever we would go on a picnic, they requested the "tuna fish special". The variety of flavors gives it a special taste everyone loves. No matter how many different tuna salad recipes I've tried, this one still tops our list! -Gerry Tressler, St. Petersburg, Florida

    his is my go to tuna salad when I am wanting a lite meal, my new tuna favorite. I cut the recipe in half and use a 3oz. can or packet of tuna when I make it for just me which is most of the time as I am a single person.
