I made only the tuna salad and served on a mini-bagel. I was searching for a good tuna salad recipe for my daughter's lunches for school. Found it!

This tuna salad sandwich variation made for a very tasty lunch DH & I shared yesterday & we liked all parts of the flavors & textures when combined. My only prob was the ingredient amts for the tuna & cucumber for just 2 servings on 2 bagel halves. 3 cups of tuna + 1 whole cucumber was too much even for a hearty appetite, so I used 1 6 oz can of tuna + 1/3 cucumber & the rest as written. This was good & will be repeated. Thx for sharing the recipe w/us. :-)

This made a very nice light dinner. I enjoyed the flavors. I used fresh dill, and dried tarragon. I halved the recipe. Thank you!
