  1. Yummy tuna salad with the added sweetness of apple! I used a honeycrisp apple and my mayo was the regular type. This is very easy to make and uses things I always have in the house. I sprinkled with a bit of curry powder and that was fabulous. Thanx!
  2. Used Hellman's and a golden crisp apple. I think the Red Wine vinegar makes this special. It was liked by everyone that tried it from teens to adults.
