We loved this recipe! Great lime and cilantro fans! Used nonfat Iyogurt instead of mayo. Fit into our dieting plan.

LOVED the flavors in this tuna salad! We are huge fans of lime & cilantro - just never thought about it with tuna! Our new favorite way to eat it! We served it with some crackers instead of bread.

Loved this spin on tuna. I made it open-faced on one slice of toasted wheat. Awesome!
