This recipe was printed in Penzeys One first issue. It is a deliciously different tuna salad. This goes great on a pita, with crackers or on a bed of salad greens.

To be truthful, I was surprised by how much I loved this recipe!!! I wasn't sure about the curry and crystallized ginger, but all apprehension was quickly cast aside with one bite of this fabulous recipe. Wow. I absolutely loved the flavors and would do this recipe again in a heartbeat. I'm so glad I gave this recipe a try. I served mine on toasted bread. Thank you, Paula! Made during ZWT for the Golden Gourmets.

This is very different and totally delicious! I served it with crisp lettuce leaves instead of bread and loved it that way. The salad has awesome flavors and needs no changes, but for presentation I might add cilantro or parsley next time. The recipe is now in my Best of Cookbook. Thanks Paula for sharing the recipe!
