I found the original recipe for this salad on "eHow". Because the recipe was written with enthusiasm, and it had pickles and pimientos in it, I was intrigued. I now make a double batch every two to three weeks; it's a great snack, and it stores in the refrigerator for up to a week! This salad is addicting! My hubby, who is not a tuna fan, absolutely loves this salad. This is great for potlucks and barbeques. It was requested at our family Christmas Party as a side dish; how can you go wrong with the green and red coloring throughout.Note: Accent is a flavor enhancer that contains MSG, so leave it out if anyone is sensitive to MSG. Don't be afraid to make a whole batch even for a small family, because the leftovers just get better and better with each passing day.
