1            package  albacore -- tuna, 7oz pouch (not canned)
1                     egg -- hard boiled and minced
1/4           cup  celery -- minced
1/4           cup  red onion -- minced
1              clove  garlic -- mashed, smashed and minced
1/2      teaspoon  mustard
1         tablespoon  sweet pickle relish -- drained
4        tablespoons  mayonnaise -- not fat-free
3        tablespoons  green onion -- minced
2        tablespoons  lemon juice -- fresh is best
1/2      teaspoon  salt
1/8      teaspoon  black pepper
1/8      teaspoon  dillweed -- fresh is best

In a bowl place the tuna and flake well with a fork. You do not want any
large chunks left. This is important. Once this is done add the lemon
juice and mix well. Then add the salt, pepper, garlic clove, dill weed and
green onion. Mix well. Allow to sit for 2 minutes. Add the rest of the
ingredients and mix well. Serve as a sandwich, in a tomato or on a salad.

NOTES : While the directions may seem strange the way the salad
is assembled is important. Also, for this it is best
to use real mayonnaise as it gives the best texture and taste.
All of the vegetables should be minced small. I use only the
packet tuna as it is dry and tastes better. It being dry is
important as you don't want soggy tuna which makes soggy salad.
