Zenith...this is truly sensational...the best tuna sadwich I have eaten! I did not have cilanto so I substitued a pinch of dried tarragon because we like that taste. I also did not use alfalfa sprouts and replaced English with regular cucumbers. The mix of the sweet with the tart and spicy is incredible. I will make this over and over.

These were delicious! I added another another tablespoon of mayonaise, however. This was a really fresh tasting tuna salad that I enjoyed for lunches all week. Thanks for sharing!

I doubled this complete recipe and used lemon juice in place of the lime, this definately needed more mayonnaise for my family's taste, I enjoyed the combination of spices, but will reduce the fresh coriander amount by half next time, I used about 1/4 cup for a double recipe and it was a little too much, thanks for sharing Loves2Teach!...Kitten
