So far i'm mixing it with Mayonnaise and putting it on a bed of lettuce, works well as a low carb no fat lunch dish but its getting kinda boring, any one have some alternate recipes for this product>?
Thanks

Nope, can't think of a thing that beats Mayo

Me either but you could chop some celery or onions into it and/or use a cheese grater to add shredded carrots. I also like to add some sri racha.

I could never get sick of tuna salad. Delicious and nutritious!

I add diced celery and red onion to my tuna. Just mixed with mayo would get blah fast.

i know a lot of people look down their noses at chunk light tuna, but i find that it is better for tuna salad than the solid white. it has the added bonus of being cheaper, but really i think it makes a better tuna salad.

I have a variation - I don't usually make tuna salad when I need a quick lunch. I put the canned tuna over cooked green beans (either leftover or canned), add whatever sounds good. Usually that's something like red onion and a spoonful of Parmesan cheese, and then a vinaigrette salad dressing over all. It tastes better than it looks, and it's low carb, depending on what you add and on your salad dressing.

Pickle relish is a good addition. If you use the dill relish, there should be minimal sugars or carbs. Chopped-up dill pickles would work, too.

Try adding fine-chopped onion to the tuna/mayo mix, a dab of mustard (yellow, brown/spicy, whatever you like) and then dip it up and eat it with celery sticks. The celery works as an alternative to bread or crackers, and the extra crunching leaves you feeling more full even if you're eating less food.

Another thing I've seen done is to slice a cucumber lengthwise, scoop out the seeds, and then mound up the tuna salad down the center. You can add toppings that way, too, like grated cheese, nuts or other flavor/texture additives.

I prefer Star Kist Tunu chunk light also, I just prefer the taste over the white albacore stuff which I find bland.

My thing right now is eating it without mayo. I salt and pepper it, add pepperoncinis, red bell pepper, red onion, parsley, kalamata olives, tomato and cucumber and make a sort of Mediterranean type salad. This is great on pita bread with a little olive oil.

The cucumber tuna salad wedge above also sounds fantastic!

I like light tuna better, but it must be in olive oil. I don't know why that "spring water" thing started for canned tuna. It just makes the tuna dry. There's a reason they say that oil & water don't mix. They don't!

I also like to add some boiled egg to my tuna salad--that works great if you're doing low carb.
