Love this greek yogurt tuna salad more than any other salad on this website, huge fan of anything with fish!

Carla Romane

Didn't add celery instead I tossed some carrots in this and tomatos, loved the mixture more than life!!

Leona Eghbali

Great tuna salad better than the high protein tuna salad, this has so much more flavor.

Livia Ambrosio

Such a healthy and unique meal I never imagined I would've liked it as much as i do.

Laney Wiedmer

Mavis Vollmann

If you like this I recommend the mediterranean tuna salad too it's slightly different but it's just as good.

Esme Fed

My favorite salad, well this and the mediterranean. I usually end up making it twice in a day haha.

Raylynn Hoffstadt

Best recipe out there if you're looking to eat something light and simple!

Natalya Longo

Don't bother adding chives if you're going to add celery they don't taste good together at all.

Saylor Velten

So I didn't make a salad with it and instead just slapped it on a piece of black bread! Was good.

Nancy Sheely

The texture is a bit odd but I liked it anyway cause the mustard and tuna blend so well with the spices.

Nellie Beckstrand

Never pictured greek yogurt with tuna, I was actually afraid to make this just thinking about the two mixed together gave me shivers but I guess you really can't judge a book by it's cover or a recipe by it's ingridents in this case! Amazing.

Lylah Bulnes

Brought it to work and everyone was complaining about the smell but oh man when they saw it they asked me to bring them some LOL!

Royal Lendo

My kids hate tuna in anything but when they had this they really liked it so that's a plus I guess.

Mercy Abramson

Too sour tasting with all the lemon juice I recommend not adding any period to be honest.

Ophelia Michele

This is an amazing recipe for those of you who are second guessing it, I can tell you it's worth trying to make atleast once!


So healthy and delicious!
