This is a really great tuna salad recipe I got from a friend who used it in her catering service business many years ago. The secret ingredients are the curry and Parmesan cheese! Odd combinations but this makes a terrific tuna sandwich! She used it for an appetizer with gourmet crackers and people always wanted her recipe. I have never tasted another tuna salad quite like this one, and it has been my favorite recipe for tuna salad for many, many years.

Fantastic! This is the best tuna salad I have ever tasted! The first time I made it I used chunk light tuna, and tonight I used albacore...it's great either way. I don't understand why some reviews state that there's too much mayo or dill. When draining the tuna, I use the lid of the can to squeeze it dry. Isn't that how everyone does it? It makes quite a stiff mixture this way. I also used the straight edge of a spatula to level off each measuring spoon and get an accurate measurement of each ingredient. My 7th grade home economics teacher was a stickler about this. I find this especially important when using the more potent herbs and spices such as in this recipe. Anyway...I simply ate this on a slice of sundried tomato bread from my local bakery. I was planning to toast it first but I couldn't wait! It was delicious! Once this is refrigerated overnight and served on bakery bread with romaine lettuce, swiss cheese and a slice of garden-ripened tomato it is a ten star recipe for certain!

Just thought I'd share my twist to this wonderfully flavored salad!!! I used only 1 T. lite Miracle Whip just to give moisture and The Pampered Chef Dill seasoning mix for the dill and garlic. It was JUST the VERY low fat change I wanted so I could add more healthy tuna to my diet. Thanks soooo much!!!

Very nice change of pace from the traditional tuna sandwich. Served this at a "Mad Hatter's Tea Party" recently and they were perfect! Will definity serve again!
