      I really enjoyed this refreshing salad! It was a great way to use the cherry tomatoes and cucumbers that my garden was overflowing with! I'd even consider adding slivered almonds next time...Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!

      I've always loved tuna macaroni salad but this elevates it to a whole new level. I added some peas because I always put them in tuna macaroni. Thanks for sharing a great recipe.
