  1. Not my fave.
  2. I doubled this recipe bc I was hungry. I made my own hummus from the Easy Hummus recipe on here so I didn't have roasted red pepper hummus. Instead I diced fresh red peppers and celery to put in. We don't eat raw onions so I left those out and made a tuna melt out - Read more ...
  3. I think I just died and gone to heaven. I almost want to cry tears of happiness because of this recipe. I'm allergic to mayonnaise and don't even like it to begin with and I've been eating my sandwiches with mustard for years. Don't get me wrong I LOVE mustard but the hummus adds that - Read more ...
  4. This was absolutely great. Didn't have the pepper so I added some diced celery. Nice flavor and much more healthy than using mayo. Thanks
  5. Loved it thanks for the great idea! I used lemon dill starkist tuna and roasted pine nut hummus. I didn't need to add anything else it was delicious.

  7. This is a GREAT alternative your typical mayo-ridden tuna. I used regular hummus since I didn't have any of the red pepper hummus. It was still fantastic! The spices give the tuna a great Mediterranean flavor. This is by far the best non-mayo tuna recipe I've ever tried! Thanks!!!
  8. This was great! I love how healthy this is without tasting like it is. The only change I made was using dried herbs because I didn't have any fresh. I will definitely make this again. I served it in pitas with green bell pepper slices and it was one of my favorite lunches I have - Read more ...
  9. THe red pepper hummus is an inspired idea. I liked Darlene's additions too and will use them when I make this filling again. I'm always on the lookout for new ideas for the good ol' tasty tuna sandwich. Thanks Darlene and thanks for the recipe.
  10. Loved this recipe AWESOME I added celery asiago cheese and a pinch of red pepper flakes instead of chile pepper
