"I made these with leftover filling from the Salmon Quesadillas (https://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/Salmon-Quesadillas)......substituted sour cream and a little salsa, for the salad dressing.......Very tasty!"

"I loved this recipe, I think the next time I make it, I'm going to try adding corn to it, needs more color. But very delicious."

"I only had 2 cans of Tuna and a lot of potatoes *LOL* needed something for dinner for the 4 of us. This recipe fit the bill. Thank you so much. I did not have the Creamy Cucumber salad Dressing but I did have Ranch.. OH WOW that was great. My kids loved it but the hubby well, he liked it but wasn't crazy about it. But that's fine.. The kids and I liked it very very much !! *LOL*"
