This was OK. It was a bit too herby for me. The flavor was stronger than I like. Read More

This is truly the taste of a tuna salad you would find in a high-end sandwich shop. I am single so I just ate one sandwich per day for 4 days....and I looked forward every day to eating this! This is a great way to use fresh herbs from your garden! Read More

This is by far the best tuna salad I've ever tasted. It's so fresh tasting! It's quickly becoming a summer staple around here because I have all of those lovely fresh herbs in the garden. Read More

I absolutely loved this recipe!!! It was a great way to use fresh herbs from my garden. You have to love tarragon to enjoy this. The tarragon and lemon together are really good fresh tasting and flavorful. I found this to be very delicious and not too herby for my taste. Oh well to each their own!! Read More

I used an envelope of albacore tuna which is about 7 oz. so I decided not to even measure the other ingredients but I used them all and didn't make any substitutions and I liked the results. Very different from my usual mayo-and-sweet-pickle combo but in a nice fresh healthy-tasting way. Will make again. Read More

I thought this was OK. The flavors didn't wow me and it lacked the crunch so i added fresh onions and pickles. I probably won't make again. Read More

I didn't have any provolone cheese and for some reason my tarragon is missing (I didn't grow any in my garden) but this was still an easy and awesome tuna salad I ate it all in one sitting! I can't wait to try it with the provolone and tarragon thanks for the great recipe! Read More
