Reviews for Cucumber Tuna Boats
"Fantastic! I happened to have some fresh pineapple, so later in the evening, I had a bit of the tuna salad with the pineapple mixed in, and it was divine! Best tuna salad I've ever had."
"This is a wonderful tuna salad! For my kids, I place cucumber slices on bread with the tuna to make a sandwhich. They make wonderful tea sandwhiches. I prefer dill pickles with tuna so I will just chop up a pickle or two instead of the relish. For myself, I prefer to put some of the tuna on a plate as is and put some cut up cucumber over the top. Thank you for sharing!"
"Made these the other day and my wife loved them. Just be sure to not load the cucumbers until ready to serve, they get mushy otherwise. Good recipe!"
