Everything I love in this recipe. I never heard of dill weed in tuns and I love dill weed and next time I make tuna salad in goes the dill weed!

This recipe took me back to my childhood growing up in the 50s. I made it a couple weeks ago (exactly as written). It was excellent and even my husband said to make it again.

I haven't made this particular recipe, but I have made layered sandwiches put together the same way. For me it slices better if, after assembling the sandwich, wrapping it in plastic wrap and refrigerate for an hour or so. Seems to hold together better.

I am 75 years old. My mother used to make this so many years ago for wedding and baby showers. Her layers were the tuna and the egg salads. But the third layer was something she made with deviled ham from a can. When she was finished, she made a "cream cheese icing" (no sugar, of course). Always a big hit. She served it with macaroni salad with shrimp. Thanks for the memories.

I don't get it. Would like to see a picture!

There is a picture right above the recipe on this page. smh

I think it sounds like a big mess.

Jammans, why bother with an insult? Just pass on the recipe!

I think I would switch the tuna out for canned that sounds good !
