This is a great recipe. When I tried the sauce by itself I didn't really think anything of it, but mixed in with the tuna and grapes definitely turned this into a new flavor. The grapes is a must!

Thanks for this recipe Chia. I not only had a fabulous lunch, but I also got to use up some ingredients that I am desperately trying to use up before my big move!! I cannot eat raw onions so I decided to toss them in a skillet in a small amount of oil and lightly cook for just a few seconds to get the "rawness out of them". Set them aside to cool, and then tossed them into the tuna mixture. ;) I used 3 cloves of garlic and had to use 2% milk as I didnt have skim. I put a serving into a toasted pocketless pita, and served. I THOROUGHLY enjoyed this! I think my favorite parts would have to be the grapes and the walnuts. Simple things like this can definitely kick up a salad. I love curried salads, and this is definitely one of those that I will be making again and again! I wish Id taken a photo, but it totally slipped my mind to do so as I was in the middle of writing a paper! *laugh* NEXT TIME! :) Thanks for the recipe!
