    SugarHATER's Note:

    Spicy Tuna salad You're only using 1 tablespoon on mayo for the WHOLE thing! The rest of this salad is packed with veggie and spicy stuff that will improve your circulation (good for you) Don't eat that deli crap any more! Make your own and go very, very easy on the mayo - remember whatever you put in your mouth will end up sticking to the inside of your arteries!

      This is very good, and nice and spicy. I used 0 fat Greek Yogurt instead of mayo, but otherwise stuck with the recipe for the tuna salad. I did not serve it on bread, as I am avoiding that right now due to my diet. I did used jarred jalapenos instead of fresh since I had to use the juice from the jar....although I think I will use fresh next time. I do not recommend this for spice sensitive individuals. Thanks for sharing! Made for PRMR.

      Very good and makes a satisfying sandwich (but I also think it would be wonderful stuffed in a tomato!), however I toned down the spices a bit and skipped the salsa totally. I also used regular mayo instead of the chipotle mayo as specified in the recipe.I used the pickled jalapenos and a dill pickle, skipped the celery but used celery salt and pepper and included chopped carrots. I also had this on whole wheat bread. Very good and more filling than most tuna sandwiches too. Thanks for sharing this very interesting and different tuna salad recipe which I will make again soon!
