Sweet & Spicy Tuna Salad Recipe

I took the idea of using an apple and honey from a similar recipe on tropicahnah's page. I used a cayene chili pepper in my preparation but that might be too hot for others.

Love hot! My favourite is the smoked Thai chiles and also Applewood Smoked Rd Savina powder-only need a couple grains of it to wake up anything like soup or tuna! My husband, Steve says if his nose doesn't run the meal isn't hot enough! Shanti/Mary-Anne
