    FANTASTIC! - This recipe was utterly fantastic. I was a little concerned about using so much cinnamon, but the flavors melded perfectly. The only thing I changed was I used 2 tablespoons of mayo instead of 2 teaspoons (essentially tripling the mayo) because I thought it was dry as is. I may experiment with using plain yogurt next time for a more dietetic version. Thank you so much for posting this wonderful recipe. I signed up just so I could rate it.  -  14 Sep 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I used lemon pepper instead of lemon juice and olive oil instead of mayo. It was the best tuna salad I'd ever had!!  -  15 Jul 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Great recipe but consider "tweaking" it to your tastes. I found the cinnamon was too strong and mixture was too dry. With a couple minor changes...YUM!  -  11 Dec 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
