Super good! Really fresh tasting. Next time I'll leave out the olives, personal preference.Used it as a sandwich filling on a sandwich thin with sprouts and the next day I used it as a dip with tortilla chips. Delicious both ways. Thanks for posting.

Lovely! DH won't eat black olives, so alas, made without them. We're in the RV and I had no garlic (can you belive that??, this is SAD!) Delish... served with a green salad. No wonder this is a zaar star. Oh.. wait, guess it's a FoodStar!!

I made this tonight for tomorrows lunch,but couldn't resist tasting....delicious! I only have 5 oz cans of tuna here, and halved the recipe. I used 0 Fat Greek yogurt instead of the sour cream, and no fat mayo for the mayo. This is absolutely wonderful!!!! Thanks for sharing.....running off now to add some diced fresh jalapenos....think that will just put this recipe over the top! Thanks for sharing!

This is one of the most original and yummy tuna salads I have eaten! We served it openfaced as a tuna melt on Sourdough bread. This would make a wonderful Low Carb lunch by itself. A keeper for sure! Thanks for sharing a great recipe!

The best tuna salad my hubby says he has ver had. I omitted the sourcream and used fat free miracle whip. I think next time I may just add a little more lime juice and omitted the miracle whip all together (just for a more heart healthy choice). I used this as the filling for a simple sandwich on homemade multigrain bread. It was soooooo good. I could even eat it as a stand alone dish or on a bed of lettuce. This is a homerun recipe and is now our tuna salad of choice. It does not get any better than this.

What a unique tuna salad recipe! I did not use the optional mayo/sour cream because it tasted awfully good without it! The lime and chili powder are a surprising addition. I served mine in a whole wheat pita and my DH ate his on toasted wheat. Great summer dinner!

I love tuna salad and I'm thrilled to find a new way to stretch a couple of cans of tuna, plus have a wonderful Southwester flair to the flavor. Actually used 3 small cans of tuna, and I cut back on the lime juice. I made this for the "Southwestern - Tex-Mex" challenge. Thanks!

I really enjoyed this. Made to take to work this week. Loved the flavors together, but I thought the black olives slightly overpowered the others. I'll cut back on them next time. Really liked the dressing. Thanks Engrossed. Made for SSC Pet Parade

Yummy recipe full of veggies! I halved the tuna but used the full amount of veggies. Loved this all by itself. I did add just a touch of relish. Thanks! Made for the Zaar Stars game!
