Easy and delicious! This definitely is a nice twist on regular 'ol tuna salad. I left out the peanuts and replaced that with walnuts. I also added in a little optional green onion. I mixed the mayo and seasoning in a separate bowl before folding it into the tuna and other ingredients. For the dressing I used 2 Tbsp. of Hellman's light mayo cut with 2 Tbsp. of reduced fat sour cream for added creaminess and reduced the curry to 1 tsp. which was plenty. It chilled for a half an hour and it came out really good. Overall, a great combination of flavors! Especially good on whole grain bread!

I reduced the celery by half. I used sour cream instead of mayonnaise and doubled it. It was still really bland and dry with the dressing doubled.

This needed about two tablespoons of mayonnaise - I used 1 tsp of curry powder and it was more than enough. The curry kind of masks the other flavors.

Made it as written with green onion -delicious! Wonderful sweet and a bit spicy

I had it, it was okay. Definitely include the raisins-- they do a great job of brightening up the curry. Not a huge fan, I'll probably not make it again, but it was very straight forward and I had all the ingredients at home.

This is such a refreshing, "exotic" twist on an old standby. I was surprised how nicely the curry flavor meshed with the mayo. And the little bursts of sweetness and crunch make for a delicious experience.

it was very good! i didnt have peanuts so i used almonds, and i squirted lemon on it also.

I tweaked this...I took out the peanuts and replaced the raisins with craisins. I also never measure spices, but I guessed right because it was delicious. I will be making this again!
