    CarrolJ's Note:

    Not many entrees are normally made from canned tuna except those tuna casserole recipes which have been around for ages. I thought that making moist, flavorful Tuna Patties topped with a creamy dilled sauce would make a nice entree change of pace. The various vegetables not only add something new to the tuna, but add wonderful flavor and texture as well. Most of the items you probably have in your panty and fridge on a regular basis. IMPORTANT--Do not add salt until the patties sauce are finished and tasted. The tuna and mayonnaise already have added salt and there is danger of it becoming too salty if additional salt is added prior to cooking.

      The tarter like sauce is terrific. I loved the addition of dill & lime. The flavors of the tuna patties are really nice too, but they didn't hold together at all for me. I ended up scooping the broken patties onto a plate and topping with the sauce. It wasn't pretty, but it tasted good! Good luck in the contest!

      I wish I could give this half a star. The sauce was awesome, but I had trouble making the patties, because I found the two different kinds of tuna made it a little hard to form the patties. But overall it was a great recipe.
