Used different ingredients. Really really good -way better than it looks like it's gonna be!! And I even used cheap canned tuna! I also added a touch more honey to the dressing, a bit of chilli paste, some frozen peas, cashews and served over mixed greens. Yummy, inexpensive and healthy!! - 29 Sep 2008


Outstanding, an excellent fresh, tasty salad. Use a combination of red, orange, and yellow tomatoes for a visually stunning presentation. The combination of fresh coriander, basil, green onion, chillis, and tomato makes for a fresh, vibrant look and taste. Sear the tuna in a very hot frypan or wok, and turn with tongs to sear both sides for maximum flaor. - 29 Sep 2008

I'm nuts too...

THIS is a recipe that you will cook over and over again- basic but with flair and loads of flavour. What a crisp, zingy change from bland canned tuna salad. The seasonings are just right, and guests loved this dish and have asked me for the recipe. Try it! - 29 Sep 2008
