This is the tuna salad my mom and grandma made, that i grew up on...and to me it's absolutely perfect. I have experimented from time to time and found other ingredients that were good also, but nothing comes close to the taste these few ingredients have together. NOTE - As of 2014 I will no longer be eating Tuna because of it being full of radiation from Fukushima....*sighs....very sad!
