SUMMER FOODS : TUNA SALAD & CHEDDAR

Growing up Tuna Salad was an absolute summer must. Every summer my mom would make it, it's as though it ushered in summer.One of my favorite things about Tuna Salad is that it can be varied in so many ways. Growing up my mom would always put onion in it. I never really liked the onions so when it was finally my turn to make it I started using celery. I love the crisp crunch of celery.  I really enjoy putting cheddar on mine and Husband really enjoys provolone.
