This salad is inspired by the Whole Foods cranberry tuna salad I have heard others rave about. Personally, I don't pay over ten bucks for a pound of salad. I am far too frugal. This one is a fraction of that cost, and has several of my tweaks. So forget about that other place, and save some paycheck for a can of salmon.
