Sneaky Tuna Filling

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by mom24boys

This is a great filling for sandwiches, buns or biscuits (US type). Or, try it on crackers or on a bed of greens. The "sneaky" part is the minced apple I put in to get my boys to have a variety of fruits in their diets. There are only 3 real ingrediets so that is a plus in my book.

Good recipe. I have, for years, grated a small apple into my tuna salad. Seems to take out any fishy taste. I still use finely chopped celery and onion too. Thanks for posting.
