This is a fresh alternative to the tired tuna salad. A unique, yet pleasant mixture of flavors. Also, you can adjust ingredient amounts for a personalized taste. I like it sweet with a bite. You can also use 1 slice of jack or favorite kind of white cheese to melt on top. Use for a sandwich, with wheat or grain crackers for a snack or a twist for hors d'oeuvres at your cocktail party.

Very good and different - I definitely adjusted the ingredients. I used half the amount of mayo (used Hellman's lite), only 1 Tbsp. of relish, and upped the chile-garlic sauce to 1 tsp. I also added a little salt and cracked black pepper. Next time I might increase the chile-garlic sauce if I'm feeling a little daring. Read More

Yes yes yes! Finally a tuna salad that is simple but complex and worth a second try for sure. Heres the thing the author says: "you can adjust ingredient amounts for a personalized taste." I did just that. Knowing that 1/2 C of relish would be way to much and 1/8t of Sriracha would be way to little. I went with 1 tablespoon of both. Sweet and savory and surprising good! Thanks for sharing I will make this again. Read More

I made this with canned chicken instead of tuna and it still tasted great. I added a bit more chili sauce for more of a kick. Read More

I used an olive oil and black pepper mayo because Im trying to use it up. I added 1 heaping tablespoon of Wickles ( a spicy sweet pickle mix) and just a few drops of sriracha. This is an excellent change to normal I wouldnt put eggs in it but I might add something for a little crunch. Its a texture thing not a flavor thing. Read More

I doubled this recipe. I only made one change I used equal amounts chopped garlic dills only because I don't keep sweet relish on hand (noone in our house will eat it). Very wet tuna salad but tasty. I'd make this again but I would cut back on the mayonnaise a bit. This filled four sandwiches. Read More
