    This recipe deserves more than 5 stars, as this was absolutely "the best" tuna salad sandwich I have ever had! I did modify the recipe, and used 1-(5 oz.) can of tuna, 1/3 cup dried cranberries, 1/4 cup thinly sliced celery, 1/3 cup mayonnaise, 1 large hard boiled egg (the whole egg with the yolk), no salt nor pepper, and served between 4 slices of toasted white bread to make 2 sandwiches. The cranberries sweetened up the filling, which I really liked. By the way, this is also good served on crackers, and today I also had some served with Keebler Club Crackers. Thank heavens I have a more than a dozen cans of tuna in my pantry, so I can make this delicious sandwich any time I want it. Thank you Ambrosia for posting this recipe. It's definitely a keeper!!

    This was a delicious upscale way to make tuna salad. The addition of cranberries make this sandwich so delicious and they compliment the tuna very well. Who would of thought? Thanks for sharing your fancy tuna salad sandwich reciepe.

    This was a nice twist on traditional tuna salad. I make a chicken salad with grapes, but it never occurred to me to include fruits with my tuna salad. The cranberries were a nice flavor boost. I downsized this to just one sandwich (with a small pouch of tuna) and used an entire boiled egg (yolk included). My bread was toasted multigrain and really held up to this hearty and filling sandwich.
