"I don't often leave reviews on recipes, but I felt that this definitely was worth the time and trouble to log in and review. This is the best tuna salad I've ever made, and my husband is in complete agreement. I served it on toast (with lettuce and thinly-sliced tomatoes) with deviled eggs and a cheese soup, and it was a delightful light supper. I will be making this many more times."
