    We had this sandwich for lunch today and enjoyed it very much! I did add some Dijon mustard to the bread before spreading on the tuna mixture. My hubby and I both thank you!  -  04 May 2013


    Very nice tuna salad recipe, but maybe there's a misprint here - the recipe says to use 3 (6 ounce) cans of tuna. Well, seeing as I really didn't have any army to feed and there's no way that 3 Tbsp. of mayo would make any sense I used only one can. I eyeballed the amount of chopped celery and left out the relish (personal preference). I added a little salt, pepper, garlic and onion powders. The addition of the hard boiled egg was a nice change.  -  09 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    A hard boiled egg in tuna salad is such a nice addition. I like to add chopped onion and green pepper as well as black pepper and garlic and onion powder to the mixture for more flavor.  -  19 Aug 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
