Healthy Tuna Salad


This Healthy Tuna Salad is a lighter take on creamy tuna salad. I make the dressing for this salad with ¾ Greek yogurt and ¼ mayo. I make mine even healthier by using avocado oil mayonnaise rather than the traditional vegetable oil version. This salad keeps well in the refrigerator for 5 days making it a great make ahead lunch. 

Start by flaking the tuna in a large bowl. Add the remaining ingredients to the tuna and mix well until fully combined. Chill in the refrigerator until you are ready to eat the salad. This tastes delicious in a sandwich or served over lettuce leaves. 

To make my version of Healthy Tuna Salad, you will need the following ingredients:

Very messy tuna salad but was tasty, greek yougurt is a bit too expensive for me where I live so I don't know when I'll be making this again but loved recipe so saving it.

My husband absolutely loves when I make this, he eats the entire thing 10 minutes after I finish making it.

Tuna is really good but the bread was too hard for this snack so I used a crossiant instead and was purrrfection.

Very delicious the tuna, yogurt and mayonaise mix together better than I expected, bookmarked this recipe just because of it.

Despite the small portion it's very filling and taste brilliant, going to be making this again and every time I want some yummy tuna.

Yareli Vanholland

Almost as good as the Tuna salad stuffed with avocado, would recommend both if you're a big tuna lover like myself.


A very nice recipe!
