Creamy Sardine Salad

As long as I can remember, I have loved eating sardines!  Whether they’re spicy, lemony, tomatoey, or just in oil, I think they’re delicious right out of the can.  I can remember eating them on crackers for lunch occasionally as a child.  They were never Mom’s favorite, so she never made a point of serving them!  😉

Not only do I love sardines, but I also love tuna salad–so combining the two was a delicious idea, I thought!  The addition of chopped pickles makes this sardine salad even better.  🥒  Even my non-sardine-loving Mom likes this salad.  👏
