I made this for my husband's work lunch. I did not use the tuna with olive oil or the olive oil mayo. I did put in a tablespoon of olive oil in the mix. I also replaced the red onion with green onion. I added a half boiled egg on top with paprika for garnish, like my mother always did. This was delicious and light. We love it Read More

I halved the recipe, used Dijon mustard instead of yellow mustard, and used regular mayo instead of light. Tastier than I expected! Bonus I generally have all ingredients in hand. Frozen, finely diced red onion added straight from the freezer since this is for tomorrow's lunch. Bet it's even tastier tomorrow! 5 stars for simplicity while being surprisingly yummy. Read More

I added diced boiled eggs used a little celery salt since I didn't have celery available and added a few tablespoons of my keto friendly sugar alternative and it was DELICIOUS!!!! I usually eat tuna with crackers but since I'm doing Keto I used plain pork rinds as a dipper. Easy quick and delicious! Read More

I added a few things though. I like spicy so I added a little bit of cayenne pepper along with a chopped jalapeno pepper. I also added 1 chopped boiled egg. Very delicious thanks. Read More

Quick fast and tasty. A difficult meal to mess up as the needed quantity of ingredients aren't so specific that it will diminish or excel the dish that drastically. If you can remember the needed ingredients you can almost always make a delish tuna salad by just throwing it in together. I was surprised at how the lime juice livened up the dish quite a bit.

Really good, especially considering it meets low-carb guidelines. It needs a little something, but I have yet to figure out what. Read More
