"This is a quick, healthy alternative to the usual tuna salad with mayonaise. Depending on your personal likes or dislikes of vinegar, I would suggest to add the vinegar gradually according to your taste. I prefer to make a sandwich with toast that has been lightly buttered with margarine."

"Really good! Very different from my usual tuna recipe. Crazy quick to make. I served it as a sandwich on lightly toasted bread, thin sliced onion and green leaf lettuce. Thanks for posting the recipe."
"This was a healthy, simple alternative to regular tuna salad. I made this exactly as posted, using red wine vinegar (which was not overpowering at all) and ate this on seeded toast. The tuna does not bind quite as well as with mayonnaise, but it is very tasty. Thanks for sharing. Made for Spring PAC 2013."
"Wow! What a great change from using mayo and so much more healthy for you. I used Heinz red wine vinegar (my favorite), added some capers and served on whole wheat toast as an open face sandwich. I really enjoyed this. Thank you for posting this recipe!"
"A nice fresh change from using mayo I liked it much more. I was Indecisive so used 1/2T red wine 1/2 T red wine vinegar. I ate on open face toast. I usually get the the foil packages so was unsure what size to use. I probably should have doubled all the ingredients as I purchased the big package."
"Enjoyed this! Very simple and a little unusual, served on toast as suggested. Made exactly as stated and didn't find the dressing or balsamic at all overpowering. I don't care much for mayo, and this tuna salad has the added benefit of being much better for you. Thanks for sharing the recipe!"
"Following the other review I decided to make the dressing separately and add it to the tuna until it was just moist. This was definitely our kind of tuna salad as we neither one care much for mayo. Thanks for posting."
"I had this for lunch today. It is indeed a nice change from the standard mayo/ mustard tuna salad, but the balsamic vinegar was just WAY too overpowering for my taste. The only thing I could taste was vinegar. I will make this again, as I find this an intriguing little salad, but I will cut the amount of vinegar in half. Also, I ate this on toasted whole wheat bread today, next time I will roll it in a large lettuce leaf."
