Reviews for Chow Mein Tuna Salad
"I nearly fell out of my chair when I read the nutrition facts: 804 calories, 69 g fat, 1,112 mg sodium. Yikes! I thought it tasted great when a family member made this recipe, and I had planned to make it myself. But now I know that I need to revamp things! I will start by using albacore tuna in the packets, reduced-fat mayo, fat-free sour cream, no added salt, and only a sprinkling of the cashews and the chow mein noodles. I want a very similar taste...if only I can achieve it!"
