"This recipe makes a nice light tuna salad. The orange and pecans add a pleasantly sweet and nutty effect, and there is no mayo! It tastes great on sandwiches, with saltines, and even plain!"

I did not have sweet pickle relish, so instead minced one large celery stalk. Not a fan of garlic powder or onion powder so I did not include these elements. Very good taste, I just served it ov...
