This is addictive with a few changes. I made as written but it was way too much citrus....sour. I doubled the tuna then and added fresh ground black pepper. Ate with Ritz crackers. Sooo good and I even forgot the dill weed. I added about 1/2 tsp dill weed in the morning and it is beyond delicious!!!!!!!!!!!!! Try it with my changes! UPDATE: we ate a half batch so fast so the next day I made a double batch. You have to go easy on the citrus since not all lemons and limes are the same size or as juicy. I also used fresh cilantro instead of dill weed. Read More

It is a good recipe and easy to make. I did not have green onions and used parsley and thyme instead. Also I omitted olive oil. The result still tasted good with crackers and carrots! Read More

Close to what mom made when I was growing up. She always served it with Fritos which is a really good combination. The olive oil really makes this! I added some heafty shots of pepper sauce. Yummy! Read More

I liked this. As written it was too tangy and didn't have enough flavor. I used only 1 small lemon and 1 lime and that was plenty tangy. I upped it to 2 green onions and garlic salt instead of plain salt. I made a mistake and only put one 6 oz can of tuna and thought it needed more tuna. However after reading the recipe again I realized it said 12.5 oz can so I added another can and that was plenty. I ate this with crackers and tomato slices for a light lunch today. Read More
