Fancied Up Tuna Salad

Tuna salad is something that everyone has an opinion about….fruit?  nuts?  mayo?  pickles?  Hubs and I usually go for the super simple tuna salad…tuna, light mayo, and salt/pepper.  This recipe was a total stretch for me, and I had to step out of my comfort zone, but let me tell ya…..TOTALLY WORTH IT!  Even hubs likes it, and you know that he is a hard one to please.
