I thought this was great but there was way too much mayo and sour cream. I used about a third of what the recipe called for the next time I made it and it was perfect. I also love capers so I added a few more. Overall it was great! Definately my new tuna recipe! Read More

I agree with another reviewer there are too many flavors together. It was pretty overwhelming. I don't think it had a bad taste it was just very strong. Read More

MMMMMMM....Love tuna salad and this was really yummy. I didn't have any almonds in the house so I had to omit them. I cut back on the mayo and also added green pepper. I put this on an english muffin added some shredded cheddar and put it under the broiler for a tasty tuna melt! Thanks Patricia! Read More

Interesting blend of textures of flavours. Unfortunately I did not have almonds on hand so I omitted that from the recipe. I can imagine however the crunchiness from the nuts would have been a great addition. I also used yellow peppers in replacement of the celery. I've never tried tuna salad with sour cream so this was an interesting taste. Next time I would probably add less of both the sour cream and the mayo as it was a bit too creamy for me. Overall I quite enjoyed it. Read More

It was really good but there was way too much mayo and sour cream for me I would cut the amount of each in half next time. I would also either omit the capers or 1/2 the olives because it was a bit salty for me. Lastly I added a dash or black pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice which added the kick I needed. I'll probably make this again with the changes. Read More

I love this recipe and have made it many times. We particularly like it served on extra Sourdough bread but have enjoyed it on a bed of lettuce for a light and cool summer dinner. Since I am not a person who loves tuna (but know I should eat some fish now and then) all these tasty ingredients effectively mask the fishy-ness that keeps me from eating tuna. Thanks for giving me a tuna salad recipe that I can really enjoy. Read More

I felt the capers made the salad too salty. I used black olives instead of green. I might make this again with some different ingredients. Read More

I thought this was great! I did leave out the olives since I thought that the capers would provide enough of a salty bite and I am glad that I did. This had both a great texture and taste. Read More

There really isn't anything special about this recipe. I think there are actually too many ingredients i.e. having olives celery green onions capers and almonds each separately would be better than combining them all together. Read More
