  • 2 cans - tuna, preferable packed in olive oil
  • 1 - small apple, diced
  • - a few scallions, green tops only, sliced thin
  • 1 stalks - celery, diced
  • 1 ounces - pecans, walnuts or cashews, chopped
  • 1 teaspoons - mustard
  • 2 - to 3 tablespoons homemade mayo
  • - salt and pepper, to taste
  • Directions:

    Place apples, scallion tops, nuts and celery in a medium-sized bowl. Mix well.

    Drain liquid from the tuna and add tuna to the bowl. Mash with a fork to break up tuna and blend ingredients.

    Add mustard and mayo, then mix with a rubber spatula until well-blended. (If you can stand it, allow the tuna salad to sit for about 15 minutes to allow the flavors to meld).

    While the tuna ingredients are getting to know each other, cut up some raw vegetables to eat alongside. This is also yummy served with butter lettuce leaves to make hand-wraps or stuffed into the halves of a raw red pepper.

    Note: To balance the creaminess with a tiny tangy bite, add 1 teaspoon of vinegar along with the mayo.
