Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

These sound amazing. I love fresh little snacks like these!

I think we should try it with the tuna fish before we just decide it is an error. I am a diabetic, and honestly, the tuna is better for me than the ham. Do you really believe the tuna would change the flavor that much? In addition, do you think anything else in the recipe should change when changing it from the ham to the tuna?

I realize this is a couple of months late but if you buy the smoked ham steak it has only a little bit more fat than tuna. I am also diabetic and watch my carb and fat intake very closely. Also this info comes from using fresh tuna. Canned tuna in water has less fat. You would probably do ok unless you decide to eat them all.

This would make such a fun party appetizer!

I used 3 cucumbers to be sure I do not have left mixture it is a great recipe!!!!

Where's the TUNA? In listing on 1st page--called Easy Tuna Salad Cups?

Hi there! Could you please let us know where you saw this recipe listed as a tuna recipe, so we can correct it? Thank you! :)
