    "Honey, I don't know what you did to this tuna sandwich, but I devoured it." This, from my husband who hates cottage cheese. I didn't tell him what was in his sandwich, but he came home and asked for the same sandwich tomorrow! This is my new tuna sandwich recipe. Absolutely a keeper!  -  07 Jan 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Lets see, I eat an english muffin with cottage cheese & diced tomatoes almost every single morning (with my 3 cups of coffee - a bit extreme, I know), I love tuna salad, AND I love egg salad so why the heck not mix em' all up? This is AWESOME! I did infact eat this on a toasted english muffin, and added about 2 tsp. of hot giardinera relish (sounds gross, but I love it with tuna)for a zip. I will probably use this recipe as a regular. Thanks a bunch Teresa!  -  11 Mar 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
