    This tuna salad is fabulous! I love the lemon flavor and blend of fresh herbs. It's a nice change from the regular tuna salads I'm used to - this is a definite keeper!  -  11 May 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is truly the taste of a tuna salad you would find in a high-end sandwich shop. I am single so I just ate one sandwich per day for 4 days....and I looked forward every day to eating this! This is a great way to use fresh herbs from your garden!  -  03 Jul 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I followed this recipe exactly and it was WONDERFUL! This is a great alternative to the egg versions of tuna salad I grew up on. I hosted a baby shower and made finger sandwiches everyone RAVED!! Thanks for the new spin on an old fav!  -  10 Nov 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
