  • I tried to make the original recipe but we didn't have roasted peppers or that particular kind of wheat bread, so instead I added some diced peppers I had on hand and used some multi-grain bread; it was still delicious! - 6/26/08

  • This is an AWESOME recipe! I substituted some things like honey mustard instead of mayo, since that's what I had, and I had to use my 100 calorie-per-slice and higher carbs bread, but it was still great, and the protein boost that I really needed for today! Thanks! - 6/25/08

  • This is very good! Though I couldn't follow the recipe exactly. I didn't have any tomatoes, peppers, or chives so I added a little onion, a dash of cayenne pepper, and some shredded cheese instead of the sliced. I've never been a big fan of tuna, but it was yummy! - 6/15/08
