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.
  Albacore tuna 18 Ounce (in water)
  Light mayonnaise 4 Tablespoon
  Honey 1 Teaspoon
  Minced garlic 1 Teaspoon
  Red onion 1⁄4 , finely chopped
  Cilantro 2 Teaspoon, finely chopped
  Chili pepper 1 Tablespoon, finely chopped
  Fuji apple 1 Medium, finely chopped
  Pita bread 2
  Sliced tomatos 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Sliced cucumbers 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Romaine lettuce 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Salt To Taste

Mix together everything except the "sandwich materials" in a large bowl. Tear pita bread in half, open the pocket and spoon in the tuna salad mix. add sliced cucumbers, tomatos, and lettuce to taste.

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

Hey Moosie, When I see this recipe of Sweet and Spicy Tuna salad, I became very happy. Actually I am eagerly searching for seafood salad. In my view it would be a best healthier side dish option.really this is a great combination of seafood and salad. It is looking very simple and easy . I will try it.
