Wonderful flavors! I substituted raisins for the dried cranberries and used plain Greek yogurt instead of mayo. Also, I left out the salt and pepper. The sweetness of the fruit balanced the tuna and yogurt perfectly. This is my new tuna salad recipe of choice.

I've never been as big a fan of tuna salad as my husband, but I did enjoy this. The cranberries and fresh apple provide just the right amount of sweetness. I did miss the crunch of chopped celery, so I'll probably add a little next time, and 2 Tbsp of mayo was more than enough. Had today for lunch using pita bread with some fruit on the side, but would be equally good on some spinach or lettuce.

Yum! I added sunflower seeds as well! I also served It on whole wheat bread instead of spinach.

I used Albacore in this recipe and it was the best tuna salad my husband and I have ever had. Definitely on the make again list!

I loved love loved this. I normally don't make tuna fish because it's boring to me. This was not. I did add about a tbsp of lemon juice, which have it a nice little bite. Delicious!

Great recipe! Now I'm going to substitute Greek yogurt (my wife doesn't like mayo), take the hint from the photo with your recipe and serve slices of fresh fruit on the side (she loves avocado and papaya), and serve stuffed into 100% whole wheat pita, along with spinach leaves! Thanks for sharing!

Good recipe. Since my family's tastes are more spicy than sweet, I made a spicy-sweet tuna salad. I added 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper, raisins instead of cranberries, 1 whole chopped apple, 1 1/2 tbsp light mayo and 1/4 tsp raw honey. it was the perfect blend of sweet and spicy. YUM!
