    This is a very excellent tuna salad recipe and I have been making almost the exact recipe for many years! After slicing my apple off of the core, I dip in lemon juice to keep it from browning. I also like to throw in a little chopped celery and use chopped red onion. The red onion and apple combination - mmmm!  -  16 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very good. I've had apples in chicken salad but never in tuna--it worked! After making as written I found it a little dry for my taste, so I doubled the mayo and pickle relish. I just used a dash of salt and pepper. Yum!  -  11 Sep 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
