As a teenager, my son loved this. He's grown now and still loves it. Cook time is the chill time.

I chose this recipe because my kids don't like red/green peppers and celery in their salad. I also had to use one and a half cups leftover cooked chicken instead of the tuna. But it tasted great! The cubed cheddar cheese (I used 'tasty' cheddar) adds a nice contrast to the sweet gherkins. Delicious and different!
