This delicious tuna salad started as a joke somewhat.  Don, the kids and I had made “fire pies” (or hobo pies) on Saturday night out back on the fire.  Don put pepperoni on his and I teased him calling  it “gourmet” and “high flautin'”.  (Growing up, we used to make them with just American cheese slices and Pizza Quick.)  It never would have crossed my mind to put pepperoni on them.  So, for Sunday’s lunch I had planned on making tuna salad and pasta salad – and I never make tuna salad the same way twice.   I thought to myself “I am going to make this “gourmet” tuna salad.  And, this is what I came up with…

You know how some days it is just too darn hot to cook?  You want something fast and easy and cool?  Something that is good enough for company?  This recipe for Company Tuna Salad fits the bill!  Delicious by itself, on a bun, or with some crackers… it is so delicious and easy!
