"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!"

"There are so many variations on tuna salad. This one looks wonderful. I remember adding walnuts to mine once, and a friend makes a scrumptious version with, of all things, diced apples!"

"I dont like the cellery or cucumber either, thanks for the idea! I have been putting dill relish in mine, but i like the idea of fresh Dill, Carrots and Scalions! I Bet it would be great! Thanks for the tip!"

"Adding carrots is a great idea, but a problem I have with most tuna salads is that they usually contain either celery or cucumber, and if either of these is present, it seems to be all I can taste! Because tuna salad usually needs something green & crunchy, several years ago I started putting finely chopped scallions in mine, and everyone I have made it for has been a convert. I'll definitely try adding carrots next time, though!"
