If I do not have relish, I will mince pickles and their jar mates! I too add the lemon, such a difference! Served on the leftover picnic buns...childhood memories. Just add the chips and rootbeer!!! Thanx for sharing!raf

This is the traditional American tuna salad - the only way I have ever eaten it. What is the “twist?” One additional thing I add is lemon juice to the tuna before I add any other ingredients. Also I really break up the tuna into the finest shreds possible before adding anything else.
