Served this over the Christmas Holiday when guests just "popped in". Easy, fast and GOOD. My intent was to serve it at our block's "tree trimming party" so I had the ingredients on hand. Kids loved it. I also tried it (as I was making it) cold, and that is just as good. The pecans add a nice texture as well as taste. Inexpensive and on hand ingredients make it a regular from now on.
I think the concept was good but they needed something else. I ended up adding a lot more curry powder but probably needs something like toasted pine nuts to add a little more dimension.
This is quick, easy and tastey. It calls for ingredients commonly found in most pantries. Not outstanding, but pretty good. I served on Italian panetini for a bit of a texture change.
This recipe made me a little iffy because I had never heard of adding pineapple to tuna before. This is so good and very easy to put together. It is good warm or cold. I had mine today on wheat bread which was good, but hands down is better on Ritz crackers.
Far East Tuna Haiku: "No need to heat these. The tuna mixture's great cold. (Needs more curry though.) I love the taste of curry in tuna, so I increased the tuna to 1/4 tsp. Only had walnuts on hand, so I toasted and chopped those instead of pecans. I tried the tuna, warmed, as directed, on Ritz crackers and it was terrific, but I actually enjoyed it later in the day on toast with melted provolone, green onion and tomato. With the sweet pineapple, savory curry, and crunchy walnuts, this is a nice and unusual take on standard tuna-salad. Oh and a little shake of S&P doesn't hurt either.
I made 1/2 recipe. Went over very well. I added double the curry. I think it could use a few grains of salt and I NEVER add salt.
This was tasty and easy! I didn't have pineapple so I used a couple spoons of pineapple preserves, and didn't have pecans so I used chopped almonds. I also increased the curry powder to 1/4 tsp. and just ate it out of the bowl with sesame crackers. :) Yum!
This was great. I loved the curry and pecans! I added some green onion, and cut back on the pinapple a bit.
