    This is a fantastic main dish perfect for those hot summer days when a light, cool meal sounds good. I make the day before to let the flavors blend.

      This is good but a little bland for me. I used a 15oz can chickpeas in place of the tuna. Next time I'd use more miracle whip and less sour cream. I like the added texture and sweetness from the peas, and I love the hard boiled eggs. Really it all comes down to how you like your tuna salad. I'll try this idea again with my usual version + the peas/eggs. Thanks!

      I made these for the office and they were DELICIOUS-everyone loved them! Fast and easy to prepare and so pretty on a platter. Thank you for a great recipe, Claudia Dawn! Made for the Think Pink Tag Game In Honor of Breast Cancer Awareness, October 2008.
