"HOLY FRIJOLE! This is AWESOME good! You will NOT believe it has no tuna! I used about half a can of black olives (because I'm a black olive freak!) but everything else the same and it was crazy good! a MUST HAVE in your vegan repertoire."
"this was amazing! i was doubting it would work at first but it tastes just like the real thing! i haven't had a tuna sandwich in 12 years, this tastes like my childhood. thank you so much for this recipe!"
"Call this Vegetarian Mock Tuna Salad and I bet you'd get tons of hits on it! Sounds delicious."
"I loved this salad! I halved the recipe, used slightly more chopped black olives, served with crackers. I used about 1 tbls. of mayo. Thanks! Made for Cookbook tag."
"I don't know when a recipe that is so simple has given me so much pleasure. The flavors are delicious and do, indeed, taste like tuna salad without the fishy smell. I mashed the garbanzo beans and added the green onions, celery seed, a double portion of chopped salad olives, a generous sifting of dried dill weed. I bound the salad together with a full tablespoon of Dukes Sandwich spread which contains chopped pickles, and with enough plain Duke's Mayonnaise to complete the binding process.It was great just after I fixed it, but even greater after sitting in the refrigerator for a couple of hours to allow the flavors to meld. I'm afraid that "Charlie the Tuna" will not be gracing my table again in a salad, but perhaps for a casserole! The salad would be good on pita or a rustic bread. Thanks Mini R for this very special recipe!"
