Hipquest's Tuna Salad

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by hipQuest

This is the tuna salad to try for people who say they HATE fish. This is great on a sandwich or salad with crisp lettuce, fresh cucumbers, fresh tomatoes, whatever veggies strike your fancy. I have played with the basics to come up with something I like, things not included like raw onions and celery can be added. Eggs may be omitted. The technique of the tuna is the key. I have also made this with fresh grilled tuna.
