A very nice change from the usual tuna salad. I can't give it 5 stars because the mayo amount is way off. 1/4 cup is a crazy amount. More like 1-2 T is all you need. I also don't use as much onion but that's just my preference. It's just as good to sub lime for lemon juice. Read More

This was different - I'll give it that but I'm not sure if I'd call it Asian. I used Hellman's light mayo and since I didn't have fresh ginger root I opted for a bit of ground giner. I used green onoin since no "type" of onion was specified. I did add the optional curry powder. This was a nice change from regular tuna salad but one I don't think I'd make again... Read More

This wasn't particularly Asian nor spicy. I used an entire jalapeno not just 1/2 teaspoon doubled the curry powder and added celery and diced seeded cucumber. I just couldn't bring myself to put mayo in an "Asian" salad so I made a vinaigrette from rice vinegar soy sauce and sesame oil. Also I used chopped green onions instead of white. With the changes this came out very good. Spicy and Asian. Read More

I cut back on the mayo added a little soy sauce and used just a small amount of ground ginger but upped the curry powder. Very enjoyable and thank you! Read More

I thought this was a very good recipe for Tuna. I didn't have fresh ginger root so I used ground ginger instead. My family enjoyed the different blend of spices. I would make this again. Was good with crackers as well as a sandwich. Read More

This was really different which is why I liked it! All the flavors went together really well. I did make this an hour before I ate it so the flavors would mesh together a bit. I did use a couple green onions I upped the curry to a full teaspoon and I used olive oil mayonnaise. I did not have fresh ginger so I used 1/4 tsp. ground ginger. I also added 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder. I spread this on cucumber slices and it was a really enjoyable lunch. Read More

This turned out pretty well - a very nice departure from the traditional tuna sandwhich. It has a bit of a kick which is good. The ginger added a nice accent. Read More
