I've been looking for a delicious, quick-to-make, tuna salad that my whole family would eat. This is it! The only thing I added was 3 Tbsp. of sweet pickle relish to the dressing. I used to add cubed cheese to tuna salads, but didn't this time, & my family was very happy. This is definitely a keeper!

This is a really good salad. I served it with the Broccoli Cheese Crepes in the same issue.

I made this yesterday, and ate it for lunch today, and it was wonderful. I followed this exactly using Hellman's lower fat mayo and skim milk as directed, but I added one stalk of chopped celery and about 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley for color. Delicious.
