I grew up eating a similar tuna salad, I have since adjusted it to be a little healthier than before. The apples make it fresh and delicious! Serve on bread of your choice with lettuce. Yum!

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! Read More

This was ok for something different but it's not something I would make again. The dill was too overpowering for my taste. Read More

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! Read More

This was a very good recipe. I did add a lot more mayo though because without it the recipe was way too dry. Read More

Great flavor and love the added touch of the apples!! Added shredded carrot for extra color/flavor/texture. I was out of onion so added onion powder/flakes which I prefer any way for a smoother tuna salad!! Went well atop my salad for lunch @ work!! Read More

Really great. I made it per the recipe. The pic shown has to have more than 1 T of mayo. Mine didn't look like that at all. But it was really good and I'm sure I'll make it again and again. Read More

Wonderful. Double the mayo and add 1/4 cup of pecans and it is perfection! Serve on toasted bread with lettuce and a thin slice of tomato. Read More

This was surprisingly really good. I tend to like tuna the way I grew up on it & don't usually stray from that. But I had a juicy apple sitting there and I thought "what the heck". Since I'm only making one serving I halved the recipe. They must make tuna cans smaller because mine is 5 oz. I used the white albacore in water. I wasn't sure what to think of adding olive oil but I really liked it. I did use a bit less and added more mayo but I like the subtle flavor of a good olive oil in there. I used a bit less apple because it seemed to be too much for the amount of tuna. I only had dill pickles so I used a bit less dill. It's a really nice change of pace from my normal tuna salad. Thanks for sharing! Read More

This recipe saved me on a day when I was out of celery and we liked it with the apple! I did add some slivered almonds for a little extra crunch. Read More
