Tuna Salad for Two
This time, Tuna Salad for Two comes from Sharon Balzer of Phoenix, Arizona. "We have long, hot summers here in the dessert Southwest, so I try to get creative with salads and come up with cool dinners for my husband Roger, and me," explains Sharon. "I've been serving this tasty, refreshing dish for at least 5 years. We think it's simply scrumptious!"
