I've been making this recipe for 20 years. It has always been a favorite. I often eliminate the celery. I've also used other onions rather than red in a pinch (red is mostly for color). These days I use low-fat mayo rather than fat free. South Beach diet has changed my ways...the fat free just adds carbs. Read More

I made this recipe as written and I think it's a little heavy on the vegetables. It was hard to find the tuna in the finished product. Next time I'm going to try using half the listed amount of veggies and experiment with various spices. Nice and healthy though - thanks! Read More

Mmmm! This was a great twist on tuna salad. And so healthy to boot! I also used a little bit less broccoli/cauliflower than it called for. I used fat free mayo. The only thing this lacked was a little bit of flavor - I sprinkled in some dill garlic powder & sea salt and a little bit of red wine vinegar. I just ate it straight from the bowl! Read More

I'm a tuna freak so I'm always looking for new ways to make this traditional salad. This was really great and I also added some chopped english cucumber plus my usual garlic and onion powders and black pepper. I just used my good ole' rich in everything Hellmans. Terrific recipe and thanks! Read More

I omitted the celery due to taste. When I was eating I found it too be a bit too cold for my tastes and also thought it needed a little something. I added some shredded cheddar cheese and warmed it up in the microwave. A yummy healthy lunch. Read More

I made this with canned chicken and then followed the recipe exactly. It was delicious! It makes A LOT so like the other poster I would recommend halving the recipe. It's a great thing to make on a Sunday afternoon for a few lunches during the week. I'll definitely be making this often. Read More
