Comments

We served this to our fourth grade students and it was a huge hit! We served in corn tortillas. This is a great way to get some more veggies into our diet!

Really easy awesome recipe. My recommendation is to add a little cilantro and possibly some lemon juice and put in tortillas for an awesome, non-fried, version of a fish taco.

The Tuna Cabbage Salad was a big hit at our house.  I added some dried dill weed, which I always like in tuna salad.  Some shredded carrots made it more colorful.  Substituting about half the mayo in any recipe with plain yogurt makes sense to me!
