Great recipe for doctoring up tuna. Used it in a pinch right before my daughter went to school, so I didn't have any eggs. I used less than 3 T mayo and it was great. I only used 1/2 an onion. I was so confident this recipe would make my husband a tuna sandwich lover that I did the open-your- mouth-and-close-your-eyes routine. Okay he didn't appreciate it... and he really doesn't like tuna fish after all. : )

I had to put a little spin on this recipe based on what I had available. So, I did not have any sweet relish in the house, instead I used some olives and diced those up. Did not have onions either, so I substituted that with a bit of onion powder. Still turned out delicious and wanted to share my thanks and suggestions for an alternative take on this recipe. Good eats!
