    poo235's Note:

    I've recently discovered tahini and absolutely love it! In this healther adaptation of tuna salad, tahini replaces mayonnaise as the emulsifier and adds unique flavor along with the Middle Eastern spices. I like to add apples to my tuna salad for a contrasting sweet, tart flavor.

      This was really good! I loved the combination of flavors. I didn't use the capers or apples. We're trying to cut carbs, so instead of using a pita bread, we just made kind of a lettuce wrap with it. I used two 6.4 oz pkgs of the foil pkg tuna, there's no draining that way. Thanks for posting.
