Patty’s Tuna Salad

This tuna salad recipe was featured in a larger blog post, A Tale of Two Salads. See the original post here.

Patty’s Tuna Salad adds lime juice and Serrano peppers that bring a nice brightness and kick to the dish! The green olives are also a great addition. You can make yummy sandwiches after you’ve prepared the tuna salad, but I love eating it with tortilla cups. It quickly turns this dish into a hearty snack.
