Indigo's Ridiculously Good Tuna (Salad!)

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Indigo

My obsession with tuna really started at Tealuxe, the nummiest teahouse in Boston! This is my own special recipe; I really think the flavors are strong and the texture is satisfying. *Please note, the amount of mayo could be much more or less to taste, I really just throw in as much creaminess as I feel for at the time... You can eat it alone, in a pita, or like a tuna melt, it is too good!

We love the horseradish in this. I used red onion, and subbed a few drops of Cajun Sunshine hot sauce for the cayenne. Thanks for posting! Made for Zaar Cookbook Tag.
