If I had not made a double batch for a pot luck tonight, I would not have had any to bring home. It is good as a take along dish as it is ok if it sits out for hours. Everyone wanted to know what it was. I think they all liked it better than I do. For me, it is good, not great. It is a nice change of pace....the next day....I used this to fill celery and the crispy crunchy celery really wake it up!!!
I will make it again and will, likely, spice it up a little more. I imagine wrapping a teaspoon full in lettuce or nesting it in endive would also be good!!!!
Am making it now for the church potluck and had to taste it without the tuna (as I am allergic to tuna). It does taste pretty good, and I can see how the tuna flavor would, surprisingly, blend in. It Is just a bit bland. Thank you for posting such an unusual recipe. And it was the first time that I'd eaten capers! Will try it again with packaged salmon.
This was pretty good. I used tuna with lemon in it. Next time I will use pepper and kalamata olives in the salad.
I had my doubts (tahini and tuna?), but this turned out great. I'm not a huge raw tomato fan, so I replaced them with peas. I also forgot to add the lemon juice. I used whole-wheat couscous...I wonder if that brings the carb count down a bit?
High on aroma points and appearance. High on the low-carb scale, approx.5 net carbs. Though This is not a low-fat dish, it was easy to use the low fat versions of some of the ingrediants to make it so. On a warm evening this dish will easily become a one dish meal and a Very satisfying meal. This recipe is a keeper.
Made this for lunch today. It was surprisingly full of flavor. It is easy to put together and perfect for hot summer days. Served this over a bed a mixed greens with crisp bread on the side.
