Delicious, Mayo-Free Tuna Salad!

One of my favorite quick dishes is egg salad, tuna or chicken salad.  The problem which I have encountered is I am not a fan of mayonnaise.  When we changed our diet it became one of my quests to find an alternative. Well – here is one of our favorite replacements.  This works for chicken or tuna, I happened to make tuna today:

Delicious Mayonnaise Free Tuna Salad


  • 1 Boiled Egg
  • 1 Can Tuna
  • 3-4 Small Stalks of Celery
  • 1/2 large Cucumber – diced
  • 1/4 c diced Onion
  • 1/2 Avocado
  • pinch of Salt (optional)
  • 1 TB Olive Oil


  1. Either start your egg first to boil it while you prepare the rest – or go ahead and move on to the next step. Put egg in pan of water and turn on high heat – keep covered, when water is boiling remove from heat and let sit for about 10 minutes.
  2. Rinse and chop Celery and Cucumber – add to mixing bowl.
  3. Chop, dice small amount of onion – add to mixing bowl.
  4. Add Tuna to mixing bowl.
  5. Mash up boiled egg in a small separate bowl, IF making fresh boiled egg let cool just a tad. Then add Avocado and Olive Oil and mix together well. Can add salt at this step.
  6. Once the avocado and egg are blended up add to the rest of the ingredients and mix well. This is wonderful when served on a bed of lettuce with a few apple slices! We love to sprinkle our favorite herbs on top.
  7. TIPS: Keep a couple of boiled eggs on hand to use to make a quick snack with left over chicken, turkey or for a day when you just don’t want to cook!
