MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 17, 2013

"I thought this was very good. I got six sandwiches out of it though; making 5 was too much tuna for my taste. Very simple to make and carries well for lunch. Will most likely make again."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 5, 2013

"Hands down, a family favorite. The colorful addition of carrots also gives the sandwich a nice crunch. This is exactly what all those other tuna sandwiches are missing."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 27, 2012

"A tuna specialty! I go generous on all my seasonings (onion, garlic, dill). For extra texture & flavor, try diced water chesnuts, scallions and/or tangy dill relish to taste!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 24, 2009

"Good tuna salad but a little bland - I would increase the dill especially, although I usually use more tuna than recipes call for which could be the explanation. However, I don't see how you can get 5 sandwiches as full as in the picture out of only 3 (6 oz) cans of tuna after they're drained."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 20, 2009

"I found this recipe to be good, but not outstanding. I would include diced apple to the mix!"
