We enjoyed the flavors in this cheeseball. The horseradish, tabasco, etc combine to make the spread slightly spicy & married well with the tuna. The pecans were a nice touch as they added crunch. I elected to not add the salt & for us it wasn't missed. I used the leftovers to make wraps in whole wheat tortillas loaded with grated carrot, romaine, and thin slices of red peppers. Thank you for sharing the recipe!
