Oh my, this was just delicous! I halved the recipe and used canned tuna in water.I loved the curry flavor along with the crystalized ginger! I'm so glad I picked this for Zaar tag!

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!

Delicious! I was very impressed by the flavor of this, it's so different from the average tuna salad. The only change I made was to use walnuts in place of pecans. I'll make this again for sure!

Tasty tuna salad like you've never tried before! This would be wonderful to serve at a tea, luncheon or shower. I LOVE fish, especially tuna, so for me this would not be a regular dish because the curry and other flavors are quite strong and mask the tuna. I think I could make this for my Dad who refuses to eat fish and he would eat it thinking it's chicken salad.

I really enjoyed this recipe because it was so different. the only thing i changed was to reduce the mayo content considerably because of dietary reasons. it was a bit too sweet for me so i will be cutting the amount of crystallized ginger next time. thank you for posting!

Without a doubt the BEST Tuna Salad I have ever, ever had! The flavor blend of ginger and curry elevated the humble tuna sandwich to haute cuisine! I had water pack canned tuna on hand, so I used that and I also used walnuts instead of pecans. The next time I made it, I threw in a hand full of chopped grapes. Delish! Thank you PaulaG for an awesome break from the ordinary! UPDATE: Suprise company caused this dish to morh into a Gingered Tuna/Pasta Salad. Loads of compliments and recipe requests!

A treat for the taste buds! This combination of flavors is fantatstic! I omitted the olive oil, but otherwise made it as written. Great on crackers, but I agree w/ Bev; right out of the bowl is best! I think chopped apple would be great in this, too. I'll be making this again. Thanx for posting this!

Paula, this tuna is THE best tuna salad I have EVER tasted, anywhere! The blend of curry with the crystalized ginger is a winning combination! The cayenne and Dijon are just enough to wake you up and the red onions and pecans give it personality! This would have made a great sandwich, but I simply couldn't resist eating it straight from the bowl. : ) Thanks, Paula, for another great recipe!
