DH said this was especially good and he really enjoyed it. Easy to make and a definitely different take on tuna salad. Will certainly add this to the salad rotation for the summertime. Thanks for posting - made for Spring PAC 2012.

Very nice and different tuna sandwich! I left out the onion and used a regular minced tomato instead of sun-dried. I put mine on ciabatta bread and DH's in a wheat wrap. I thought the oil-and-vinegar and the fresh ground pepper made this sandwich special. Thanks for posting this recipe! Made for Fall PAC 2009

I served as a salad instead of on bread; we love tuna salad and this one is special. I served it for lunch with tomato slices, cheese and a roll.I made this for PAC; thanks for posting.
