The flavor of tuna is very subtle in this thick and creamy spread. It's terrific on crackers or carrot and celery sticks, stuffed in a tomato or used for a sandwich. —Dorothy Anderson, Ottawa, Kansas

"Thanks, Dorothy, from a fellow Kansan ! Didn't think I'd care for this since curry is NOT MY THING, but after having the recipe in my "TO TRY" list for three years or so, I made it today. WOW ! What a delightful spread I'll make again and again ! I put it on a toasted English muffin and topped with a slice of home-grown tomato....just excellent."
