  • 2 celery stalks diced (about ½ C)
  • ½ small Vidalia or other sweet onion diced (about ½ C)
  • 2 small or 1 medium Granny Smith Apple diced
  • 1 ½ TBSP diced jalapeño peppers I use Mt. Olive brand

  • Drain tuna well and place in large mixing bowl.
  • Dice celery, onion, and apple and place in bowl.
  • Break or chop pecans into pieces.
  • Add remaining ingredients and stir well.

I use Granny Smith because I like the tang it delivers, but I’ve used Honey Crisp and Gala apples and they work too.
Serving Suggestion
This salad works well on its own, atop leafy greens or in a lettuce wrap, in a sandwich or on a bagel.
