Food Fun Friday- Tuna Walnut Salad with coconut

Let me first say that an avocado trumps any dish and gives it an A.  This is a nice recipe- not too tuna-ee.  Plenty of crunch and a nice flavor.  (my comments are in italics)
Coconut Tuna Walnut Salad
1 can tuna
1/2 C roasted walnuts (pecans)
1/2 C coconut flakes (non-sweet coconut)
1/2 tsp fresh peppermint finely chopped
1/2 apple, peeled and diced small
Salt to taste
1/2C plain yogurt (1 scoop)
1/2 C raisins (no raisins thank you)
1/2C mayonnaise (1 scoop)
Mix all ingredients.  Serve immediately or chill.  Serve over Spring mix, romaine or in 1/2 Avocado.

I would try that with chicken since I'm not real fond of tuna but I would love the raisins in.
