I'm the tuna queen in the family and I loved this great sandwich. Although my friends think I am, I skipped the nuts. Capers and olives are my buddies, but I did rinse due to the high sodium content. Loved it; YUMMO!!!!

I left out capers, almonds, Worcestershire sauce. Added chopped hardboiled egg, 15 grinds of fresh pepper. Used whole mayo and whole sour cream. Raves from the wife. Keep it, she said.

Yum! I had some iceberg lettuce left in the fridge, so used that instead of the red-leaf, added a slice of cheese and some fresh tomatoes (as I do to most sandwiches) and my husband and I loved it! We love tuna, and this was a nice variation to it.

I used leftover cooked brook trout (flaked) instead of tuna and it turned out great. I would definitely make it again! There were no leftovers!

This was just okay. My husband and I viewed it as just average. Probably would not make again. Not any better than making tuna sandwiches with miracle whip.

This is the tastiest tuna sandwich you could make. I left out the nuts and olives and but in A1 steak sauce instead of Worcestershire sauce. I am making it again for sure!
