My husband (and cat) love tuna, I'm a little iffy, but this was really tasty. The only thing I added was a little garlic powder. Thanks Rebecca for an alternative for plain old tuna salad!

bereitbach, I subbed the nonfat greek yogurt for the cottage cheese because that's what I had on hand. The yogurt gives more of a zip/tang than the cottage cheese would, but was tasty with the other fresh ingredients.

What could be used to replace the cottage cheese in this recipe? We don't really care for cottage cheese, but we do like tuna and I would like to try this.

i used canned instead of the pouches as i don't really care for the pouches and i doubled this recipe for our family. I also left out the cucumber as i don't care for cucumber either. I found this recipe very FRESH and loved it! It will be a regular menu item now!

I love this recipe. It is my new favorite tuna recipe. We ate it with the crisp cucumber salsa recipe.

I thought this recipe was delicious was not too strong. I didn't use spinach but just put lettuce on the sandwich. Even my picky daughter liked it.

Normally we like tuna fish salad but this recipe had too strong a flavor for us. I had never purchased tuna in a pouch. It might be better with canned tuna fish.
