Tuna Salad

an all-time favorite

My take on the classic tuna salad. An all-time favorite

Tuna salad has been a quick and easy comfort food for me for a long time. The addition of apples gives it a fresh and crisp flavor.

    • celery
    • bell peppers
    • can use whatever is on hand

  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir. Season to taste.
  2. Serve on a bun or bread. I like to add a pickle.
