"This is great if you're looking for the perfect recipe for traditional tuna salad. I got it from one of my favorite Cook's Illustrated cookbooks. The texture is perfect and not watery, which is one of the things I've always hated about some tuna salad recipes. The lemon juice also gives it a nice fresh flavor."
Serving Size: 1 (145 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 4
"ABSOLUTELY THE BEST TUNA SALAD EVER!!!!! A classic version, which I have searched for quite some time, really hit the mark. I didn't want anything exotic, just something similar to what you receive in restaurants. It has depth and is well-rounded....nothing is too overpowering. I only used a few shakes of parsley (and it was dried not fresh), and I only used two capfuls of lemon juice, so it may have been less than the recipie, but everything else was fresh and exact as the recipie. I would highly recommend this recipie!"
"DELISH! I made this in hopes that my picky eater of a roommate would like it...He said, "it's the best tuna salad I've eaten"...then he went for seconds! Bravo. Totally saving this recipe and making it in the future."
"My son and I did really enjoy this tuna salad that I served on rolls. It was nice and creamy, the mayo could likely be decreased a bit. I loved the crunch of the veg. I will be adding gherkins to my tuna salad from now on. The lemon juice is lovely and really gives it a light flavour. Overall, a very nice tuna salad. Thanks for sharing. This was made for PAC 2010."
"YAY YAY YAY thank you for posting! I've made this before but i lost my recipe... THANKS AMYZOE! this is soooooo good. I like it on sandwiches as well."
"I made this up for a sandwich for my DH and he totally enjoyed it! Of course, I tasted it too and it was good! The dill and the red onions really came through for me. Thanks Ceezie! Made for Newest Zaar Tag."
"I liked the taste and looked of this recipe a lot. The red onion looks nice. I did add an extra can of tuna and it was still very good. Next time I make it, I'll add 1 tablespoon of lemon instead of 2. I felt it was a little too lemony. I also put mine in the food processor for a few seconds to make it a little smoother for sandwiches. I personally like the texture that way. Great, simply recipe."
"This was a very good tuna salad which I made sandwiches with. I also think this would be very good to stuff tomatoes with and I will use this recipe again doing just that! Thank you!"
"Very good. Liked the texture. Will make this again"
