There is so much about this recipe that I love. All the flavors are spot on. What stoppped me from giving this five stars, is the chunk light tuna called for. I used very high quality tuna, but found the texture to be rather "mushy", which only increased after it marinated awhile. Because we liked the flavors so much, I next tried it with white tuna. This time the texture was more appealing, but the flavor wasn't as good. Well, the third times the charm. This time I made it as written but subbed canned salmon for the tuna. Fantastic. With the salmon, this is a five star recipe.

what drew me to this recipe was the fact that it is a wholefoods recipe so i tried it and glad i did. excellent taste. not sure what the other reviewer meant by it not being vegetarian; unless mayo isnt considered vegetarian but that could easily be subbed with soy mayo. a delicious tuna salad that was easy to make and this will be how i make my tuna salad from now on. thanks for sharing this recipe!

This is a great tuna recipe. If you like what's in the ingredients, then you'll like this salad. I served it on a bed of spinach and garnished with tomatoes and cucumbers. I think this would be a good luncheon or tea party type of dish. Thank you so much for posting! I will be making it often (I'm a little obsessed now).

This is an outstanding salad! I love all the different flavors and textures. I had to quarter the recipe's amounts because it was just for me. I think I got enough for two or three nice meals. I just had some for lunch, and am looking forward to enjoying the rest. I do think this would work well with chicken, too, as another reviewer mentioned. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us.

A point of clarification - tuna isn't vegetarian. Fish are animals. Vegetarians don't eat animals. As I said, I'm sure it's a good dish . . . but not vegetarian (though you can use tempeh in place of the tuna!).
