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.

Very yummy and what a pretty presentation. I've made something similar in the past but just used plain tuna salad. This recipe is much tastier! I admit to forgetting to mix the peas in. Silly. I had them cooked and drained and sitting in a bowl and then just plain forgot to add them. On the other hand I really liked how they ended up looking with the peas on top. Very pretty!! Don't skimp on the dill and use fresh if at all possible.

I made a version of these a while ago, using shrimp salad instead of tuna, thinking that I was being so original. Oh well. I shall try these, as they do look good as well, and not as costly. Thank you.
