I made this for a quick lunch today, it was very good! We loved the taste of the pecans mixed in. We had it on 12 grain bread. Along with a few sauted veggies, this made a great, easy meal. Thanks Denise!

I served this to some of the girls I had over for a luncheon. They loved it. I couldn't find Ott's French Dressing so I used Krafts. I spread it on party rye bread along with a big platter of fresh-cut vegtables. The pecans gave it a nice "crunch". Thank you for sharing this recipe.

We really liked your tuna salad. I have made it twice now. The first time we had it scooped on lettuce leaves and it was delicious. The second time, we made tuna melts and we liked that even better. I couldn't find Ott's dressing so I just used Kraft. Definitely the clincher ingredient. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

Excellent recipe. Prepared exactly as directed and made tuna melt sandwiches for lunch. I plan to use this tuna salad as a main course during the summer using a lettuce bed, deviled eggs, and potato salad. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

This is so good and easy to make. Great when having lunch dates. Family enjoyed it also. Hard to find something that everyone likes. Definitely a keeper.

This is a lovely salad. I used it on tomato and avocado slices, which made a lovely presentation. The French dressing added a pleasant and creative punch. The pecans added just the right crunch. Definately a crowd pleaser, and I will be using this one again. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

When I saw "Ott's" listed I knew this was gonna at least be good... but this recipe is AMAZING! I use an entire "stalk" of Green Onion (white bulb and the 2-3 green parts) and the same with the Celery (whatever looks good and edible). I've made this recipe 5 times the past 2 weeks and I like to use 1/8 cup Pecans and 1/8 cup Walnuts (yes, half the amount of nuts). It comes out perfectly... not too saucy, not too dry - and great for finger-foods. For Melts I put the mixture on a toasted English Muffin with Tomato and Smoked Swiss, then bake at 425 for about 10 minutes. The Melts are the best! Thanks for sharing!

Very good. I will be making this again often. What a quick & lovely sandwich - and very nice to serve to lunch guests. A good combo of ingredients, especially the clever addition of French dressing.

I like to find different tuna salads and this one grabbed my attention because of the French dressing in place of the all mayonnaise versions. I knew it would be good, but I was actually surprised at just how GREAT it is! It tangy, crunchy and wonderful. I made this without making any substitutions and I'll make this again for sure. Thanx for sharing this!
