Sweet and Spicy Tuna Salad

Rated as 4.33 out of 5 Stars

"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."

This is what I do, but I add a dollop of mustard and freshly cracked pepper

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.

This sandwich is super easy to make and taste good. The chile-garlic sauce gives it a nice little kick.

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 ...

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 excelle...
