Liked the idea, but canned peas? Tried it twice. Second time I used frozen peas and it tasted much better. Also, I used the olive oil mayo, not regular. As I said, good idea. Just monkey with it a bit to your own tastes.
I think the roportions where off I used 2 cans of tuna instead of 1. I also used half of the what was called for pepper and garlic. Placed on toasted wheat bread for a sandwhich.
I did enjoy this, but, I would think a can of peas to one can of tuna would be too much. I used about 1/2 C of frozen peas instead. It's a great way to add a veggie in. If I had added a tsp of black pepper I would never have been able to eat this. I am not a black pepper fan. I did put a few shakes in, though. I was almost leary of adding a whole teaspoon of garlic powder, but, I did add it. I really like garlic/garlic powder and use it quite a bit. I didn't really taste it all that much while I ate it but there was a bad aftertaste. I'll only add 1/2 tsp next time. I will make this again. P.S. I just noticed this recipe is for 6 people!?!? LOL! I ate the whole thing!
Use thawed frozen peas, canned peas are mushy. Also I like to add some chopped red onion.
Better with frozen peas - agreed! Also added chopped green onions.
Yummy i also added a little mustard like you would regular tuna salad and a little bit of mozzorella cheese i would have used cheddar but too many calories
I love this recipe but spice it up a bit with a few chopped chipotle peppers in adobo sauce or Mexican hot sauce to taste. I also add garlic powder and eat it all with tortilla chips. Mmmmm!
In my continued quest to get my family to eat peas, this worked wonderfully! I had to improvise and use frozen peas instead of canned and then I used a little more (full-fat) mayo than the recipe asked for, but it worked well. Nice easy recipe!
