    This was pretty good, a basic tuna salad. I added a little table spice blend to give it some zing. To the reviewer who was disappointed because this recipe was missing the mayo: The whole point of the recipe is that it does not contain mayo, it's even in the title of the recipe.  -  04 Feb 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I had this for lunch today only I modified it a little bit. Instead of bread and butter pickles I used Mt.Olive Dill Salad Cubes and omitted the salt. It was very good on whole wheat bread. I will be making this often.  -  23 Nov 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was a great, easy, healthy recipe! I just made one serving for lunch and it was filling and satisfied all of my cravings. It would have been just as easy to make the entire salad and feed a family. I loved it!  -  04 Apr 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
