      It tastes nothing like tuna- but still very good! I used carrot pulp from 1 cup of carrot juice, but I would probably use fresh ones next time - maybe the texture would be better. DH liked it. He thought this was my unsuccesfful attempt to immitate a terrine! I did add 1 tsp of wasabi powder at the end. Thank you !

      I thought this was...interesting. We did have to make a few subs. based on what was on hand. We left out the celery and used dry parsley and fat free mayo. I enjoyed it with crackers, though I did find it quite salty with the soy sauce and the salt. Interesting lunch, though!

      Not like tuna, but a fantastic salad! I used regular grated carrot, and about a cup of chopped tomato (I only had grape tomatoes.) Also didn't have red onion so subbed scallions. I guess the texture would be quite different if using carrot pulp and finelt chopping the veggies, but I was too lazy to chop it all up so tiny and I'm glad I didn't because I loved this just the way it was. So good I ate the whole bowl for lunch... nothing else needed. Thanks for this one Sharon. It's a keeper!
