"This is a great recipe flavors are different than the usual tuna salad. I was looking for something different to pack in grownup lunch boxes and this is definitely it. Thanks!..." See more"
"Yum!!! I was scanning through allrecipes, wondering if anyone had ever combined black beans and tuna, and I came across this recipe. It's great! I usually try to follow recipes to the letter when I..." See more'm trying them for the first time, but I had to make a few changes to use what I had on hand. I only used 2 pouches (2.6oz) of albacore white tuna, a few thin slices of red onion, 1/3 of a green bell pepper, and a little bit of miracle whip in leiu of the mayo. I also went light on the cumin and used a few spoonfuls of Rotel instead of salsa verde. I do wish that I had cilantro, but it is really tasty without it too! I will definitely make again!!"
"WOW! I loved this. I used water packed tuna instead of olive oil packed to cut down on fat. I eye balled the cumin. (probably ended up being the same as in the recipe, I was sceptical, but don't skip ..." See morethis!! It makes the salad!) I did not have green chiles or fresh cilantro, but I had a large jar of HOT salsa, and added some of that. Love all the ingredients! SO healthy. I just added about 1-2 TBS of olive oil Mayo, and that smoothed it out, rather cut the heat a bit. I like it with and without the mayo. I had to add more salsa and cumin after I added the mayo. (I like it with a kick) The cumin really changes this and adds an awesome taste to this. My new Fav power lunch. I used lots of yellow, green, red and orange pepper. (I had all of that on hand) I had to let you know how great this is! I used to just mix a TBS of mayo and salsa to my can of tuna (My sis taught me that. I thought it was gross when I saw her do that, but it is good) I will never do that again. Can't wait to have my sis taste this one... SSSOOOOO YUMMY! THANKS!!!!"
