    Really delicious. I love tomatoes and tuna together so this was a natural fit. green onions to the salad mixture but otherwise followed the recipe to a T.

    I've been making this dish multiple times every summer since this recipe was published - it's great for hot weather! The flavor of the tuna salad is great, and I always include the cashews.

    awesome flavor and a refreshing lunch. We have so many tomatoes that this is a good way to use them.

    I did not really like this recipe. I like tuna salad and I love tomatoes but obviously not together.
