This is what I always considered to be Tuna Salad. My mom made hers similar to this only I don't believe she added a CUP of relish. That sounds like a lot but I would have to try this first. Nonetheless, this was a great way to stretch that one can of tuna to feed a family of 6!

Well Fran this the way my Daughter made it and it was Delicious and she knows, how I don't like tuna salad very much and made it this way for me. And your right it's a good way to stretch your one can of tuna.....

This is my daughter's favorite!! Sometimes I don't add relish if I'm using Miracle Whip with Mayonnaise (half & half) but the rest of the recipe is the same. I'm sending this to her.
