Anyone have recipes for tuna salad WITHOUT mayo? I like tuna salad, but would like to try different versions without the fat/calories of mayo.
Thank you to all!

I used 2 tbsp sour cream, 1 tbsp ranch dressing, 1 tbsp relish, some spicy brown mustard and some hot pepper. It was great

I make Tuna Salad with this salad dressing: 1 TB of Tahini, 1 Teaspoon of Olive Oil, 1 fresh squeezed lemon zest, a sprinkle of black pepper, and 1 TB or 2 of Bragg's Liquid Aminos (but soy sauce could work). I'm also guessing on the amounts I just throw stuff in a small bowl to mix before I add it to the Tuna. Hope you enjoy it.
I like tuna with really chunky fresh salsa, pepper, onion flakes and parsley. It sounds kind of weird, but it's wonderful. I like to use tortilla chips to scoop this up, but you could put it on bread, pita, tortilla, crackers, etc.
My father uses a light vinegrette dressing on his.

My husband and I don't care for Mayo so we make ours like this- it's pretty low calorie also. We mix the proportions however we wish, but it is something like this:
1 can tuna, drained
2 Tbsp. mustard
2 Tbsp. dill relish
You can make it moister or more dry as your taste prefers.
Good luck in your recipe search.

My husband puts mustard on the bread, then puts tuna on bread. Very good.
www.rachaelray.com has recipes for tuna salad without mayo. She uses evoo instead.
Mix in cream cheese and cocktail sauce to taste, plus a little bit of dehydrated onion flakes and parsley. This makes more of a spread and is very good on crackers.
I make tuna salad with spicy brown mustard instead of mayo. You could also use regular mustard. Make the tuna salad the same way you do with mayo but just substitute mustard instead. It's very good!

Chop up an avocado with it.

I make a dressing using no fat plain yogurt, no fat sour cream (about 1/2 of each) and a tablespoon or two (to taste) of no fat mayo or salad dressing (Miracle Whip makes a good no fat version). Just mix it up and add garlic powder and dried dill weed. Yum. this is also good as a vegetable dip, and with tuna and salmon patties. You don't have to be exact with your measurements, or with your ingredients. I have made it sans sour cream if I did not have any.

I use pickle juice. You can also use just a few teaspoons of water....anything that will make it spreadable. If you add celery or onions or something crunchy, you can hardly tell there's no mayo.
Try www.cooks.com - They have never failed me, even if w/ nothing more than inspiration!

I've even used ranch dressing! It was yummy!
Try using 1/2 mayo and 1/2 mustard; or try mixing tuna with plain lowfat yogurt.
