Variation on La Leche League's 'Super Summer Tuna'

I've been flipping through a near-ancient (published in 1981) La Leche League Cookbook these past few months. I love it: the recipes are incredibly simple, quick and delicious. It's timeless. Here's one that could possibly lift the winter blues, get you thinking about summer:

Variation on La Leche League's "Super Summer Tuna"
(from the LLL Cookbook)

1 6 oz. can tuna (or 1 package), drained
2 hard boiled eggs, diced
1/2 c. macaroni noodles
3 Tbsp. Goat Yogurt and/or Mayo (or more, depending on your taste)
Mustard, to taste
1/4 c.-1/2 c. pickle juice
1-2 Whole dill pickles, cut however you want (sweet pickles can work too)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 small onion, diced
1 small apple, diced. (either peeled or not)

Mix all ingredients in a bowl and serve on toast or plain in a bowl. Refridgerate leftovers.
Makes about 3-4 servings.

This is such a versatile recipe. You could substitute many ingredients, or add a few.
