What do I need to make no mayo tuna salad?
For this recipe you’ll need the following:
- A single-serving (2.6 oz) Chunk Light Tuna (packed in water)
- Green onion
- Dill pickle (or dill relish)
- Onion salt
- Fresh ground pepper
What is a healthy substitute for mayo?
Plain, full-fat Greek yogurt is a great option to substitute mayonnaise. As you can see from the nutrition label above, this popular mayo brand first ingredient is Soybean Oil. This is an ultra-trans fat oil and highly inflammatory and toxic in our bodies.
Mayonnaise is also very calorie dense. As you can see from the label, just 1 tablespoon of mayo is 100 calories.
With plain full-fat Greek yogurt, you get the same creamy texture without all the calories or toxic oils. Plain, full-fat Greek yogurt comes in at just 28 calories (Fage 5% plain Greek yogurt) for 2 tablespoons.
What can you mix tuna with besides mayo?
In addition to plain full-fat Greek yogurt, mustard is also a good option as well as Tzatziki.
My Greek Yogurt Veggie Dip is very similar to Tzatziki and tastes amazing!

Is canned tuna good for weight loss?
Yes! Canned tuna or vacuum sealed tuna pouches are a great source of lean protein. When mixed with Greek yogurt, it makes for a very healthy protein source for a salad, sandwich or stuffed avocado or tomato.
