“This recipe makes a nice light tuna salad. The orange and pecans add a pleasantly sweet and nutty effect, and there is no mayo! It tastes great on sandwiches, with saltines, and even plain!”

Short review:loved it. Long review: I used - a 6 oz can of tuna - 1 tbl of fat free nayonaise (soy based product) - 1 tbl of "hot dog relish" (mustard/relish mixed) - 1 tbl orange juice - a nut mix of soy nuts, peanuts, cashews and sesame seeds with garlic powder and other spices already on it. The flavor of the salad was overall "brighter" and different from normal tuna salad, but not so different as to be odd. I thought the taste and texture were both great. The only thing I didn't like was that the nuts became somewhat soft after sitting in the tuna salad overnight. However, it is possible that it has something to do with the type of nuts I used. Sometime, I'll have to try it with pecans or walnuts and see how it turns out.

This was deliciously different! I have a friend that was asking for a tuna salad w/o mayo in it...I am going to pass this one on to her. For a little extra sweetness, I added some chopped mandrin oranges after I tasted the original salad. I liked it even better with the man. oranges! Thanks for the post!

I didn't have onion powder, so I added a tablespoon or so of minced sweet onion. This is delicious!
