Directions:
Drain the water or oil from the tuna and dump the tuna in a bowl and thoroughly flake the fish. Chop in the four hard-boiled eggs. Dice the celery, onion, and sweet pickles and add to the tuna. Sorry but I don't have exact amounts. I just guess. Stir in the mayonnaise and add the salt, pepper, and celery seed. Again, I don't have exact amounts.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Everybody makes Tuna Salad but mine is very popular with friends and family. I guess you could say that people come from miles around to have my Tuna Salad. Except for the tuna and eggs the rest is up to taste.

This has always been my favorite food since childhood and it is probably the first food that I learned to make on my own. The sweet pickles came from my Aunt Louise Lentz Schantz. When I was a little boy I noticed that she always added sweet pickles to her tuna salad. One summer when I was 21, I worked in Wildwood, New Jersey at Groff's Restaurant. They always added the celery seed. Without the celery seed and sweet pickles you have everyday tuna. Enjoy!
