    I hate cottage sheese but I LOVE this recipe. You cannot taste the cottage cheese (prob because the tuna is very flavorful). It is easy to throw together and take to work with you. Again, I hate cottage chz and have had this for luch five times in the last two weeks - 1/29/11

    The flavor of the tuna was greatly diminished by the addition of so much cottage cheese, even with salt, pepper, and curry powder. I will try it again, but I think I'll add a hard-boiled egg. It's not horrible, but I wasn't wowed. - 9/26/12
