This is an easy salad to make when you're in a rush, and works great on a bed of lettuce, or used to make sandwiches.

As a salad this can be served simply on a bed of lettuce, or cut tomatoes in half and hollow them out and fill with the tuna salad.

Use all organic ingredients. Ensure all the dried spices are labeled certified gluten free and any packaged items are labeled gluten free.

Substitutions and Notes:
  • You can add your own personal touch, such as adding a tablespoon of relish, a teaspoon of lemon juice, or even use mashed avocado or Greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise.
  • When I have fresh garden green onions or chives, they work great instead of white onions, and remind me so much of lunches my mom made for us growing up.
  • For sandwiches you can use fresh buns, croissants or toasted bread. Add some sliced tomatoes and crisp lettuce leaves for some nice crunch.

Prep time: 10 minutes Makes: 4 servings Difficulty: Easy
Gluten free Dairy free option Egg free Grain free Soy free
Ingredients:
1/4 to 1/2 cup Homemade Mayonnaise, mashed avocado or plain Greek yogurt
2 cans (5 oz each) Chunk tuna, packed in water, plain
2 tablespoons Celery, chopped fine
2 tablespoons Onion, chopped fine
Sea salt, to taste
Black pepper, to taste
Optional Extras:
1 tablespoon Relish
1 teaspoon Lemon juice, fresh
1 teaspoon Homemade Yellow Mustard
Substitutions and Notes:
  • Mayonnaise: You can use Greek yogurt (plain, unsweetened), or mashed avocado instead of the mayonnaise.
  • Onions: You can use chopped green onions with the white part instead of regular onions. You may need some extra, up to 4 tablespoons, if there's a lot of the green part.
  • Dairy Free: Use dairy free mayo or mashed avocados instead of Greek yogurt.
Directions:
  • Drain tuna and squeeze out the excess liquid. Cut up the celery and onions.
  • Combine mayo, celery, onions, salt and pepper and stir to mix. Add any optional extras at the same time, and combine.
  • Add drained tuna to the mayou mixture and combine until everything is mixed well together.

Serve on lettuce or make into sandwiches. Sandwiches are best eaten right away, to prevent the bread from getting soggy. Can be stored in an airtight container for up to 2 days. Stir before serving.

Enjoy!
