    This is so yummy. I have it on savoury biscuits such as Premium biscuits or rice cakes. My partner & I demolished half a bowl of it watching footy recently. He loves it.  -  01 Sep 2013  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    This is great on crusty fresh bread rolls...I'm not a big fan of plain old tuna so all the other flavours mixed in give this such a welcome boost.  -  21 Apr 2009  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    Lots of chopping involved but it was worth it in the end...awesome sandwiches! I suppose you could use Dijon or seeded mustard as an alternative to the yellow kind.  -  19 Apr 2009  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
