Here is a recipe we got from our friends in the States. Tuna salad is excellent as a filling for baked potatoes or fresh bread or a salad for a party, or with a green salad. Would be nice with your Potato Pancakes with green beans or broccoli. It is such a good recipe and so we are never short of a quick meal that we all can eat within ten odd minutes having picked up some fresh bread. Kids eat it with, what we call soldiers (toasted bread cut into strips).

Two tins of Tuna (drain and flake)
Small tin of sweet corn
2-3 pickled gherkins, chopped
2-3 boiled eggs
Mayonnaise, as much as desired
Empty above contents into a bowl and mix together. Gherkins can be substituted with cucumber. Eggs can be left out. Best if eggs are not boiled too hard. It has lots of bite and flavour and is a scrumptious, cheap, fast meal which can also be mixed with pasta shells for cold summer salad.
