"This is a fresh alternative to the tired tuna salad. A unique, yet pleasant mixture of flavors. Also, you can adjust ingredient amounts for a personalized taste. I like it sweet with a bite. You can also use 1 slice of jack or favorite kind of white cheese to melt on top. Use for a sandwich, with wheat or grain crackers for a snack or a twist for hors d'oeuvres at your cocktail party."

Yes, yes, yes! Finally a tuna salad that is simple, but complex and worth a second try for sure. Heres the thing the author says: "you can adjust ingredient amounts for a personalized taste." ...

i used the mayo/relish cut in half and use crushed red peppers.

This is what I do, but I add a dollop of mustard and freshly cracked pepper

I have actually added the Chili Garlic Sauce to Tuna Salad before, I used Huy Fong Foods, it still has the seeds and to me a little more kick, but the same taste! Good recipe!

I made this with canned chicken instead of tuna and it still tasted great. I added a bit more chili sauce for more of a kick.

I used an olive oil and black pepper mayo because Im trying to use it up. I added 1 heaping tablespoon of Wickles ( a spicy sweet pickle mix) and just a few drops of sriracha. This is an excelle...

This sandwich is super easy to make and taste good. The chile-garlic sauce gives it a nice little kick.

Simple, but fresh take on a very traditional canned tuna preperation
