Well that's what Chef Dirt says from the Outer Banks. It really is a great tuna salad. I will say if you ever make tuna salad with fresh tuna you will not be buying Star Kist in the near future.
This recipe does make about 4 pounds of salad so unless you are having a party you might want to cut it in half. It will keep in the refrigerator for 7 days however.
