Questions & Replies

  1. What size can of tuna? And is it a pickle slice or spear?


  1. Wow... PERFECT recipe. Added half a jalapeno, and served with fresh garden lettuce on toasted multigrain rye. Unbeatable!!
  2. This was fantastic. Normally I'm not a huge tuna eater, but I decided to get rid of the can I had and used this recipe. I will be using this again. I did add a boiled egg as per another poster suggested-- and it made all the difference. The only thing I can think of to spice this up might be some cheese.
  3. Before my hubby went to bed he requested tuna for lunch tomorrow. Of course, had to look on zaar! Found this and tried it and he will be lucky if he has any left for him tomorrow! It's sitting in the fridge, I hope I have enough will power! Thanks for the great recipe-LOVE it!
  4. Of all the tuna sandwich and tuna melt recipes I've tried, this one is by far the best!! The pickles, onions, and pepper add tons of flavor. I used a reduced sodium tuna, pickle relish, and low-fat mayonnaise; then served this as a salad, surrounded by fresh veggies (carrot sticks, tomato slices, and lettuce leaves) and hot buttered toast. YUM!!! What a great recipe--thanks Melany!!!
  5. Yummy! I used a 12 oz. can of tuna, 3 large tbls. mayo, green onions, and used dill pickles and some sweet relish. My husband requested mustard so I added a tsp. of it. Scattered parsley over the top to garnish and served it on lettuce surrounded by tomato wedges. Lovely! Thank you!


  1. Very nice. I skipped the onion, but added some bell pepper as a personal preference. I also used some Mrs. Dash salt free seasoning instead of pepper. The saltiness of the pickle goes really nicely with the fish. Thank you.
  2. Delicious. The onion is what makes this dish extra special. I've also made this recipe using green olives instead of celery, since my dad is not a fan of celery. I served this on toasted bread, and it was a hit.
  3. This was good! I used olives and olive juice instead of pickles and pickle juice.


Hi, I'm 27/F, originally from Alaska, but for the past five years i've been in Seattle. I work as an HRA/Dental claims processor at Flex-Plan Services, and am working towards a degree. In what? I'm just going for my AA and working from there. We all have to start somewhere. I love this place! Every time I need a new recipe, I come here. Rarely have I had a negative experience. Thanks to all for making this a great site.
