    Kendra*'s Note:

    The first time I heard of tuna salad with chopped apples in it, I really had some doubts. And then I tried it! Since then I've played with the ingredients and have come up with this. It's a very flexible recipe. I've made it for sandwiches. I've added cooked macaroni for a whole meal salad. I've eaten it on crackers. I've used small shrimp instead of tuna. I've added celery and used different colors of peppers. I've used lemon instead of lime. I've used garlic salt instead of regular salt, and made many other substitutions. It always turns out good!

      I have used this recipe as a starting point a few times. Usually I add in small shell or macaroni pasta to make it into more of a tuna pasta salad. I agree with the other reviewer: as long as you have the tuna, apple, mayo, hard-boiled egg, lime base, I think you still have the spirit of the recipe intact. Yum! Thanks for sharing.

      I really liked this refreshing spring-like tuna salad and you are right, this recipe can be used as a starting point for many additions and substitutions as long as you have tuna, apple, mayo, boiled egg, and citrus as a base. I followed the recipe, but made two changes. I did not add jalapeno pepper and used Meyer lemon for lime since we always have abundant Meyer lemons we can pick from our own tree throughout the year. I think because Meyer lemons or perhaps my lemons have quite a bit of juice, I only used half a lemon for a half a recipe and found it perhaps a bit too much liquid and next time I will use a bit less. But, citrus in this tuna salad is a key as well as apple and should certainly be included. Thank you Kendra for sharing this wonderful recipe with us.
