SO HOW'D IT GO?

I've never had tuna salad but this tasted great! I was amazed by how good it was considering how easily and quickly I made it. Thumbs up from the husband, too!

I have been trying to find new ideas for sandwiches, since I love them, but I get bored of the same ol' same ol', so when I found this recipe, I thought I'd give it a shot.
I was never really a huge fan of tuna salad back in my omni days, but I think it was mostly because it was fish and I never really liked fish. But I have to say, this was delicious :) I was very pleased with the results. I also added kelp powder, as someone suggested, but I put in about 1/2 teaspoon, maybe more. I didn't know what spicy mustard was, so I left it out, but it was a little plain, so I think the mustard would probably help. Then again, tuna salad was normally kinda plain, so..
I think it tastes even better the next day. Five stars in my book!

This was actually very good!  The only thing I would suggest is to probably double the amount of veggie mayo because it was kinda dry.  Also the kelp powder/salt add that fishy taste to it.

MMMMM.  Here's my version springboarding from the original submission.  (Thank you for the great idea!)  Used dried, soaked, boiled, chick peas.  Added vegan mayo, CAPERS, yellow mustard, finely diced raw onion, dill, dulse flakes, sea salt, pepper.  So so good.

YUM! I just made this so I could take it for my lunch tomorrow and I want to eat it all right now! Even my hubby, who still eats tuna, said it was "damn good."

I used one can of chicpeas, half a celery stalk chopped up, 2 green onions chopped up, 2 sandwich slices of clausen dill pickles chopped up, and about 2 TBS of veganaise. - added some dill weed, celery seed, salt and pepper to taste. SO EXCITED about lunch tomorrow! I'm going to spread it on whole wheat with tomato slices. :)

The next test will be to feed it to my "vegans eat crazy food" momma in three weeks when we are out there for Easter...  >:D

Thanks for posting this recipe. I used dill pickle relish and added nori, onions, a little garlic salt, and yellow and orange peppers chopped fine. My husband loved it! The next test is the teenager who is out of town at the moment. Again, thanks for sharing. :)
