    Delicious tuna salad. Used regular water-packed tuna in the pouch. I think it has better flavor than solid white tuna. Also no onion or garlic (not a fan of raw). Chopped sweet gherkins. Everyone enjoyed.

    This recipe is delicious! I was looking for a great tuna salad recipe for quite some time now. I looked at other recipes and thought they were to fancy for me. This recipe however is classic and yummy! Thanks a lot.

    This is pretty good, but it could use a bit more seasoning. I couldn't tell there was any mustard in it. I used Polar chunk light tuna, because we find white tuna too dry, and Recipe #178304 for the pickles. Since this doesn't have much in the way of seasoning, be sure to use the best ingredients you can. Thanks for posting. Made for 1-2-3 Hits tag.
