Nice take on tuna salad and great for a low-carb light meal! I loved the concept but I did change this up as I thought the amounts of the ingredients listed might be a bit much. For a 6 oz. can of tuna I used about 2 Tbsp. of Hellman's light mayo 1 Tbsp. of chopped celery 2 tsp. of chopped red onion a little garlic powder salt pepper and a splash of red wine vinegar. I let that chill while I hollowed out a large tomato and made a bed of lettuce on a plate. I then spooned the chilled tuna salad inside the tomato and served it with a couple slices of melba toast. This turned out to be a really good low fat lunch that I didn't have to feel guilty about! Read More

I made this in hopes that it would be a pleasent twist to the traditional tuna salad. The recipe as is however has far too much lettuce in it for me to consider it a tuna salad it is more of a garden salad with tuna. I made it a second time using less then a half a head of lettuce and substituted the salt for garlic powder to taste and it went over much better with the family. Read More

Great tuna salad. I also added some eggs and used low fat sour cream instead of mayo. Very easy to make. Thank you. Read More

Excellent. To make it a day ahead I add all ingredients except the lettuce. When we're ready to eat I add the lettuce. Read More

This is my favorite tuna salad recipe from here. I don't eat onions so I left those out and used fat-free mayo but other than that this recipe is perfect. Quick easy simple and tastes great. Spoon some into a hollowed out tomato and it's a perfect meal for dieters and those who just like a good tuna salad. I gave it 5 stars in all categories. Since I started making this and taking it to work on our pot-luck events it's a solid hit with everyone! Read More

This is a salad that you want to serve right away so lettuce doesn't get soggy. It is very delicious. Will make again. Read More

I like this recipe and it's SO easy! I added fresh ground pepper when I made it. The next time I make it I will reduce the mayo a bit and maybe add egg celery or chick peas. Read More

Easy and tasty but a bit bland. A good shake of garlic powder gave it the flavor it needed. Read More

This a great one if you are in a hurry. I'm watching calories so I changed the cup of mayo for about 1/4 cup of fat free sour cream. I also added 2 boiled eggs to get some more protien! Yum good. Read More
