The unusual combination of ingredients threw me off when reading through the list, but they absolutely worked together beautifully! I added cranraisins the second time I made this and it was a nice addition. Either way this is a new twist on a classic sandwich. Thanks Darra!

Way too much apple! I used 2 cans of tuna and it was still overboard! Did not like the mustard in it, either. Keep looking for a good tuna salad recipe because this isn't it!

REALLY GOOD...i enjoyed this very much! Quite a good mix of tuna and waldorf. Naturally, i change/manipulated a few things and used similar items i already had in the pantry. Changes are: miracle whip instead of fatty mayo, left out the curry, used water-packed tuna, used dill relish, and used pita bread instead of the croissants (with Boston lettuce leaves). With these modifications, it became a VERY good low-fat sandwich i will continue to make!

Great recipe but I used canned chicken the second time rather than tuna and it tasted much better. I'd definitely recommend the chicken. It was great!

This was the best tuna salad i've ever had. I was hesitant at first but I went ahead and made it. The minute my husband took a bite he said "this is delicious, what's in it". I was pleased. I did reduce the mayo amount to 1/3 cup. THanks for a great recipe. Definitely a keeper

This tuna salad was very good. Next time I make it I will reduce the mayo to 1/3 cup. I would recommend increasing the curry a tiny bit. I would also add more nuts. The combination of the ingredients is great. I used solid white waterpacked tuna. It tasted fancy.

What a refreshing change from our good old tuna salad. It can also translate well to chicken salad, etc. I made it as tuna-macaroni salad and got raves.

This was one terrific tuna salad. I made it exactly as written except for the shallot, and served in half a ripe papaya. Cool and tasty! I'm doubling the recipe next time!
