"This is part of an antipasti spread. Serve with crostini, Melba toast, or crackers at room temperature. Store in refrigerator covered. To reuse, bring back to room temperature. Do not microwave to reheat. It will turn to goop. Best tuna fish sandwich you will ever have. Use iceberg lettuce, toasted bread, and thin slice of tomato. Yum!"

This is such a refreshing, tasty tuna dish. Put on crackers, make sandwich, such a versatile recipe. Love the addition of the capers.

I made this for lunch today. I don't know when this recipe was written, but a lot of tuna now comes in packets. Guess, they couldn't keep reducing the can size. It is typically about 2.6 oz instead of 4.5 oz called for in the recipe. I had only one packet, so I cut the recipe back to 2 servings or sandwiches. I also followed the serving advice on making it into a sandwich. I made it according to directions but used olives instead of capers. I would like to try it again with the capers. I think they would be the perfect compliment. I have seen similar tuna spreads under French recipes. They typically call for olive oil instead of the butter, are usually made with olives, and have seen the tuna sandwiches with sliced boiled eggs. This is the closest I could find after another recipe dissapeared from the site, that I had planned to try. It was quick, easy, healthy, and a nice change from tuna with mayonnaise.

I thought this was delicious. I cut the butter to 2 Tbs, added a splash of olive oil, used two 3oz cans of tuna in olive oil, increased the Italian parsley to 1 C, added 1/2 C green onions, and increased the lemon to whatever comes out of half a lemon, about 2 Tbs. We served on toasted pumpernickel bagel halves with mini bell peppers on the side. MMmmmm. The kiddos loved it too.
