The first time I heard of tuna salad with chopped apples in it, I really had some doubts. And then I tried it! Since then I've played with the ingredients and have come up with this. It's a very flexible recipe. I've made it for sandwiches. I've added cooked macaroni for a whole meal salad. I've eaten it on crackers. I've used small shrimp instead of tuna. I've added celery and used different colors of peppers. I've used lemon instead of lime. I've used garlic salt instead of regular salt, and made many other substitutions. It always turns out good!
