    Brenda.'s Note:

    This isn't any old tuna salad sandwich. Filled with hummus (Middle Eastern chickpea dip), sesame oil, cumin and cilantro, this is a tuna salad like you've probably never had before. Pack it in pita pockets along with a slices of tomato and lettuce. I am not a cilantro fan, so I leave it out.

      The hummus was cut back considerably as was the toasted sesame oil which was reduced to 1/4 teaspoon (2 teaspoons is excessive and would completely dominate the sandwich). I added a dollop of hummus to each sandwich instead of stirring it into the tuna. Added cucumbers feta, etc. for better presentation. I had to make too many changes to warrant a star rating but the recipe has potential. Homemade Arabic type bread Reviewed for ZWT 6.

      I cup back on the hummus, mayo, and oil. Also, I added some slice red bell pepper and feta cheese for topping. It was very good, and something I will be making again next time I have hummus in the house. Thanks!
