This was EXCELLENT FLAVORFUL and COLORFUL! The ingredients really do go well together. I used 2(6oz) cans of tuna and didn't bother to toast the almonds. We really enjoyed this just after it was made but it didn't sit well overnight in the refrigerator...it became bitter for some reason...so I'd say serve it right away and make an amount that won't leave leftovers. Made for the Zaar tag game.
