    celery ribs, cleaned and chopped
  • 1
    tablespoon onion, grated (sweet kind is best)
  • 5
    tablespoons mayonnaise (we like the flavor and texture of "Real" better than "Lite")

  • 1
    pinch salt, to taste

DIRECTIONS

  • Chop unpeeled Granny Smith (or any tart, crunchy apple -- Fuji and Gala are also good).
  • Sprinkle lemon juice (fresh or bottled) over apples and toss to coat evenly.
  • Add drained tuna fish and flake, mixing with apples.
  • Add celery, onion, and mayonnaise. Amount of mayonnaise may be adjusted according to texture preference. More crumbly (less mayonnaise) is better to eat with a fork on a lettuce leaf. More "pastey" texture is better for sandwiches.
  • Taste, and add a pinch of sugar and salt if needed. (Some apples require a tiny bit of sugar).
