    I have made this recipe many times, and it's just as good with chicken as it is with tuna. Also, substituting raisins for the cranberries and adding celery is pretty awesome too! Very flexible recipe, as you can see, and very fresh and light. Jum jum!! - 1/14/08

    This is great. I tossed the apple in a little lemon juice to prevent browning. - 3/17/10

    This was SO GOOD! It's got everything I was looking for: Protein, low fat, creamy, sweet, savory. It's awesome. Usually I'm hungry about two hours after lunch, but not with this! I ate it with two Wasa crackers and that's all I needed.

    Thanks for submitting this DAQUIRI_CHERI!! - 4/8/08

    I don't like mayo, so I used plain non-fat yogurt, which is really good! - 1/4/08

  • We love this. I double the recipe and get 4 servings out of it. I'm surprised that the apple doesn't turn brown without using lemon. I've discarded my old tuna salad recipe since discovering this one. Yummmmm - 1/14/12
