A very simple but delightfully wonderful and versatile tuna salad. Excellent for hors d'oeuvres, it also makes a great sandwich or snack.

FANTASTIC! - This recipe was utterly fantastic. I was a little concerned about using so much cinnamon but the flavors melded perfectly. The only thing I changed was I used 2 tablespoons of mayo instead of 2 teaspoons (essentially tripling the mayo) because I thought it was dry as is. I may experiment with using plain yogurt next time for a more dietetic version. Thank you so much for posting this wonderful recipe. I signed up just so I could rate it. Read More

I'm on the fence about this one. As written it doesn't work for me. Not enough mayo to much cinnamon. If I made this again I would double the mayo and take the cinnamon down to 1/2 tsp and up the curry powder. Cinnamon is a strong spice and that was all I could taste. I think it would be a lot more interesting with just a hint of cinnamon. Thanks for sharing Dave. I always love to try a new tuna recipe. Read More

I used lemon pepper instead of lemon juice and olive oil instead of mayo. It was the best tuna salad I'd ever had!! Read More

Great recipe but consider "tweaking" it to your tastes. I found the cinnamon was too strong and mixture was too dry. With a couple minor changes...YUM! Read More

REALLY UNUSUAL - and very good! I found it was better the next day after the flavors had saturated. The thing I don't really like about tuna is the fishy taste and there is no fishy taste with this recipe!! Read More

I didn't think I would like this (cinnamon and curry - together?) but it really good. Taste better after it has been in the fridge for a few hours. I will make this again. Read More

Really good - a reminder that sweet and spicy go very well together. Read More
