This is a delicious, flavourful, and healthy tuna salad sandwich from Bon Appétit Magazine (August 2002). It's also good without the apple. If you are not a pickle lover, use a little less pickle. Per serving: Calories: 304; Fat, 5 g

I loved this tuna salad, especially with my FAV pickles, "Wickles." Thanks blucoat, for posting. Roxygirl
Really good, light summer salad. Didn't have pita and was too lazy to run to the market so, instead, filled sweet pepper halves with the mixture. So yummy! Even environmentally friendly when you use hook caught yellow tail tuna! Thanks for the recipe blucoat!
