I didn't have radishes, and did not use all that pepper, but other than that I made it as the recipe states. I am glad I didn't add more pepper because the onions gave it enough of a bite. I wonder if there is a misprint in the recipe. I certainly wouldn't use more than 1/2 - 3/4 of a tsp. The flavor was delicious and the vegetables complemented the tuna. Good recipe!
I made this to take to a potluck on Sunday and it went over very well. I also left out the radishes. The only other change I made was to use gluten free elbow macaroni (the brown rice kind). We thought this salad was delicious!
I put in 3.25 cups uncooked macaroni, use canned salmon and 1 cup of each chopped celery, chopped pepper and shredded carrots. I also leave out radishes and reduce pepper to 1/2 tsp. All other ingredients as same in recipe. I make it several times in the summer.
