    Used different ingredients. WOW this is EXCELLENT!! I made two small changes added some flaked almonds and used lime juice since I was out of lemon. I served it on a bed of cos lettuce. Thanks so much for a delightful new twist on tuna salad!!  -  24 Jul 2008


    delicious! great blend of flavours -- the onion looks like it will be overwhelming, but it fits perfectly into the dish.  -  24 Jul 2008


    Very Good! So easy, and it tasted great. I served it on top of spinach leaves, but next time I will stuff it into a pitta for a main dish sandwich.  -  24 Jul 2008
