I would agree. Next time I would skip olive oil and just go with mayo. I did like the rosemary.

Not bad. I didn't have pockets in my pita, so I just made it an open faced sandwich and toasted it all at the end since I prefer not to melt cheese in the microwave. Since the recipe is just for one and I decided I wanted tuna salad for later, I basically quadrupled this recipe. I like the addition of rosemary but am on the fence about the olive oil--not sure I'm a fan, but I'm glad I tried it as is. I have never tried tuna salad with olive oil. Thanks for the recipe!
