This is a light & tasty recipe that would be perfect for a shower or lunches. (It keeps well in the 'fridge for several days.) BUT to make it serve-worthy, I suggest the following additions: 1-2 hard boiled eggs, 1/2 c finely diced celery, 2 tablespoons sweet relish, 1 c thawed peas, & a couple shakes of celery salt. Also, use a bit less dill than suggest. (I used 1 1/2 teaspoons.) Do not leave out the pickle juice and use a good, homemade kosher dill brand for best results. I used a little more than suggested (3-4 tablespoons). Finally, do not eat it right away: Let the flavors marry for at least 2 hours (simply follow directions). Whew...That seems like a lot, but it's really not too complicated. My husband, co-workers, & I all enjoyed it. It's simple, keeps for a long time, healthy (if you use light mayo & skim milk, which I did), & cost-effective.

I think this is closer to traditional tuna pasta salad. I would add sweet relish instead of pickle juice,this adds flavor and some texture. I agree to cut the portion of dill so it's not so overwhelming.The boiled egg is also a very good addition. I would finally chop so you don't have big hunks of egg in each bite.

Quick and easy. I used less mayo and switched it to light mayo. I also used fresh dill, and substituted red onion for the yellow onion and added a little salt and pepper. Can be easily "tweaked" to your liking!
