Susie's Tuna Salad

My big sister used to make this for me all the time when I was little. All these years later, I still love it!


1 cup light sour cream
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup frozen peas, thawed
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/3 cup chopped green onions
1/3 cup sliced olives
One 12-ounce can tuna packed in water, drained
1 can chow mein noodles
4 cups chopped lettuce
1/3 cup slivered almonds, toasted


1. In a medium bowl, combine the sour cream, lemon juice, peas, celery, pepper, onion and olives. Flake tuna with a fork and stir in gently.

2. Cover and chill up to 4 hours.

3. When ready to serve, stir in the chow mein noodles. Divide the lettuce between four plates. Mound tuna mixture onto the lettuce. Sprinkle almonds on top.
