T(h)una for Thursday!

Tuna with Apple Salad

I use 2 x-large cans of the very, very best Star Kist White Albacore Chunk Tuna, canned in spring water. Do not use cheap tuna. Drain excess liquid from tuna using a colander. Separate chunks with a fork and then squeeze the juice of a fresh lime (or two) over the tuna. Stir lightly with the fork. Allow to set while preparing the remaining mixture. In a medium size mixing bowl add 3 large, diced hard boiled eggs, 1 diced apple with peeling, about a 1/4 c. chopped green onion with their blades, 1/4 c. Vlasic Dill pickle relish, 1 Tbsp. drained minced pimento and mix gently. Add 1 c. or a little more of Hellman's mayonnaise. Add seeded and minced fresh jalapenos, if desired. Combine all ingredients together and chill. This is the yummiest tuna-apple salad I've ever eaten!

yum! My mom used to make this. I make it without the apples because my kids like it that way. I don't know why. Thinking next time I'm making this version just for me. Thanks!

This sounds like a nice combination. I have always loved tuna fish.
