Pesto Tuna Salad with Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Rated as 4.45 out of 5 Stars

"I was bored and hungry, and wondering what I was going to do with some left-over pesto and some pesky sun-dried tomatoes that I wanted to get out of the fridge. I'm also a low-carber, so pasta was out of the question. It may seem kind of a weird combination, but the sun-dried tomatoes gave the tuna salad a nice sweetness and added an interesting texture."

Fabulous - and a great way to dress up regular 'ol tuna salad! I did cut back on the pesto a bit and added some minced garlic. I made a wrap sandwich out of this and added some roasted red peppe...

I was very excited to try this recipe when I first saw it, but I found the tuna a bit strange with the rest of the ingredients. In my opinion, I think chicken would be much better in this recipe...

This is the BEST tuna salad I've ever had. I made it exactly as listed and had with a mutli-grain baguette for a nice work lunch. It would also be great mixed with some crunchy veggies and pasta...

Delicious! I ended up turning this into a pasta salad (adding in whole wheat rotini) when some guests came over, and there was nothing left in the bowl afterwards! Thank you for sharing such a g...

WOW! I would have NEVER thought of this combo! Very tasty! Even threw in a little roasted red pepper.

I love tuna but make the worst tuna salad. Not anymore! The pesto+sun-dried tomato combination is perfect! Thanks!

Great new way of doing tuna! I too was left with half a jar of pesto and leftover sun dried tomatoes... funny how that seems to be the case. :) I too added garlic like one of your reviewers. I h...

I think of this recipe as a gift from above. Thank you. Like others have said, it is quick and easy to make with excellent results. I loved it. I think you could have probably used less pest...
