We totally loved this tuna salad! Such a nice change from the usual tuna salad with sweet relish. Loved the celery, carrot and seasonings. As a personal preference, I did add more mayo than indicated to reach our desired consistency. Everything else remained the same. Also, I've made this with fresh parsley, as well as with dill and loved both versions. This is my new go-to tuna salad recipe!

Very tasty tuna recipe.

My family *really* enjoyed this recipe! It was a refreshing change from the usual tuna salad sandwiches. I especially liked the balance of seasonings. I also added a chopped baby dill pickle into it and a sprinkle of Nature's Seasonings. I used a little less tuna, too, as my favorite brand doesn't come in cans that large. I halved the recipe and used 2 Bumble Bee cans (5 fl oz or 4 dry oz. each). Delicious! I would definitely make this again!

I love this! A nice change from the traditional tuna salad. I found the amount of seasonings to be just perfect for me, but you can always adjust to suit your preferences. It’s easy to put together too. Definitely a recipe I’ll be using again.

My family loved this new spin on the classic tuna salad sandwich. I usually just make mine with mayonnaise and pickles but will definitely be making this more often! I feel like the recipe made more than 5 servings as well. But I also may have used more carrot and celery because I freestyled instead of measuring.

I thought this was very good. I got six sandwiches out of it though; making 5 was too much tuna for my taste. Very simple to make and carries well for lunch. Will most likely make again.

Hands down, a family favorite. The colorful addition of carrots also gives the sandwich a nice crunch. This is exactly what all those other tuna sandwiches are missing.

A tuna specialty! I go generous on all my seasonings (onion, garlic, dill). For extra texture & flavor, try diced water chesnuts, scallions and/or tangy dill relish to taste!

Good tuna salad but a little bland - I would increase the dill especially, although I usually use more tuna than recipes call for which could be the explanation. However, I don't see how you can get 5 sandwiches as full as in the picture out of only 3 (6 oz) cans of tuna after they're drained.

I found this recipe to be good, but not outstanding. I would include diced apple to the mix!
