Yummy salad! I've made a couple of changes to the version I take to school for lunch on a weekly basis. First since the apple tends to get a little soggy after sitting in the fridge for awhile I substitute Asian pear which has a firmer texture. I also substitute chopped dried apricots for half of the dates add a couple tablespoons of chopped walnuts and use regular nonfat yogurt instead of lemon all to my personal taste. This is definitely a great recipe -- makes a wonderful lunch accompanied by wheat crackers and sliced kiwi fruit. Read More

This is such a fantastic lunch!! I love curry and have been looking for some easy recipes! I have found it!! I added grapes red peppers and crushed almonds in mine....served with Pita bread! I will make this quite often. Light and refreshing! I can't believe their is no mayonaise in this. It tastes better than regular tuna salad! Thanks Sara! Read More

I didn't have any yogurt on hand so I used applesauce. It was surprisingly very good! Read More

This salad was a delicious change from "regular" tuna salad. I would plan to serve it soon after it's made as the dates are pretty soggy by the next day. We like our tuna salad really creamy so I used a bit more yogurt but I used fat free and it was perfect. That would be a good way to save a few calories. I'll definately make this again. Read More

I improvised a bit and threw in some dried cranberries and used just plain lowfat yogurt. The taste was fantastic - great alternative to regular tuna salad - thanks! Read More

One of our new favorites!! When I make this I usually just use tuna lemon yogurt raisins and apples. It might sound funny but it tastes amazing! Read More

I enjoyed the complexity of this dish. Surprisingly good. You must use medjool dates to get the right texture for this dish. I will use a little less curry next time so as not to overpower the tuna and fruit flavors. Read More

Had this for breakfast who would have thought apples and tuna go together. Read More
