    I just read this recipe the other day. It's from the America's Test Kitchen cookbook. They said mixing the seasonings in FIRST with the tuna, just like you have it listed, made an incredible difference rather than just adding it in with the mayo.

    I like the little squirt of dijon for flavoring - sounds very good, and I do love tuna salad...always a favorite!
