I made this recipe for COOKING PHOTO SWAP #7. I was great, I loved the extra flavor the mustard added. It is much healthier than the way I make it (to much mayo). I did drain a little of the water and it still turned out great. I wan't able to get fresh dill (small town) so I added a little dill relish.
In all the years I've been making tuna, I never once thought it could be used without draining it, so I learned something new from this recipe. Mine definitely did need some extra mayonnaise, though--even with the extra water and all the mixing, it was quite dry. I also mixed in some chopped radishes. It made a nice sandwich. Thanks for posting!
