Comment

I'm used to a creamy tuna salad (made with mayo) so when making this recipe I added a couple of tablespoons of plain yogurt. Our family really loved it! It's also delicious tucked into a whole wheat pita, tortilla, or even as a sandwich on whole wheat bread.

Our family loved this recipe. And we liked that we had leftovers too!
