    Wow! Another really tasty tuna salad! I cut the recipe in half for one can of tuna. I used celery instead of green pepper and Frank's red hot for the hot pepper sauce. I'm a huge fan of Frank's! The rice wine vinegar was an interesting addition here, but there was not enough mayo. I mean 1 Tbsp. for a whole can just doesn't cut it for me. I used light mayo and just added it to my own personal tastes. This was interesting in terms of taste, color, and texture. It was very good on toasted whole grain bread.  -  18 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I thought this would be great as a pasta salad so I doubled the recipe and added Penne pasta. It was delicious! Perfect summertime lunch.  -  10 Jan 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe makes an outstanding tuna salad. I added diced celery, sliced cherry tomatoes and served it on a croissant with romaine lettuce.  -  07 Mar 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
