This a very good Tuna Salad recipe for the spicy lovers. The Jalepenos give it just the right extra ingredient. The smaller that you dice the ingredients and the longer you leave in the fridge before serving the better the flavors meld.

I used this in pita pockets for a quick to fix lunch. I did sub seeded fresh jalapenos instead of jarred and only used two. Loved the cilantro! Thank you for sharing your recipe!

mmm! this was a pretty tasty way to enjoy tuna salad. I loved the zip the jalepenos gave! next time I'll use a little less celery for my personal taste, but all in all, this is a keeper and a great recipe! thanks for sharing it.

This was a HUGE hit at our 4th of July potluck! I doubled the recipe and used 4 12.5 oz cans of chunk chicken instead of the tuna and increased the other ingredients a bit to make up for the added chicken. I served it with tortilla strips. I caught my mom, SIL and 2 friends sneaking out onto the deck at midnight to polish off the leftovers. :) Thanks for posting this fantastic recipe, dawnie2u!

Great tuna salad! It's traditional yet has extra flavor from the cilantro and a kick from the jalapenos. If tuna salad bores you, try this! I'll make my tuna salad like this often. Thanx!

Made sandwiches using this tuna salad. The salad had a nice bite from the jalapenos and is very nicely seasoned. I didn't have red onions and used a white sweet onion. Nice recipe to have on hand. Made for ZWTIII Family Picks.

This was really really good. I added a tsp of lime juice and also one tsp of the juice from the jar of jalepenos as was suggested by an earlier reviewer. Served it open faced on toast with alfalfa sprouts.

This was incredibly good! If you are hesitant to use mayonnaise, you can reduce the amount by a few tablespoons and use the liquid from the jalapeno jar. This is what I did and it REALLY enhanced the jalapeno flavor. Very good! Made for ZWT III 2007.

This is a great tuna salad! I used a premium olive-oil packed tuna we have available here in Greece as I prefer it. The jalapenos gave it a nice kick, along with the more 'classic' tuna salad ingredients. Everything came together nicely. I had this with toasted pita chips and it was delish!
