READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Buckwalter

I never liked Tuna until I met albacore. My mother encouraged me to start experimenting with this tuna to create a tasty salad. This provides a wonderful protein punch at lunchtime.

I used 1/4 cup finely chopped carrots, 2 tablespoons of chopped dill pickles and an extra tablespoon of sour cream. Served this on whole wheat bread and it was very good. Loved the crunchiness of the carrots and am planning to add chopped red onion to the leftovers, since I like onion w/ my tuna fish.
