Tuna Salad Recipe


My “go-to” lunch when I want to feel healthy is tuna salad. I interchange canned tuna and salmon, so take your pick! This version is made with a packet of salmon. Look for the 3 oz vacuum-packed packets in the tuna aisle.


  • 3 oz packet of pink salmon
  • 1 tsp curry powder (either red or yellow!)
  • 1 tbsp reduced-fat mayo OR 1-2 oz of low-fat plain yogurt
  • 3-5 squirts of mustard (zesty honey mustard, spicy brown, dijonnaise – or all 3!)
  • 1 large celery stalk, diced
  • 1 large carrot, diced

It is great and mighty filling! I eat it on

As someone who loves easy recipes, I just have to rave that this was AMAZING. I made it with tuna (vs salmon,) Veganaise (an organic vegan mayo that has no eggs–it’s not any healthier, but my mom has it in her fridge) and sans carrot. DELICIOUS.

I have also made tuna salad with sundried tomatoes and roasted red peppers. I put it on a bed of spinach on top of crusty bread and baked at 400 for 6 minutes. That is also a good way to enjoy tuna, mediterranean style :)

I love putting curry powder in my tuna salad! I also add diced onions. I’m going to try carrots next time! Thanks!

I just made this–added a little chopped red pepper and a green onion. So yummy! I served it on spinach with some homemade pita chips. What a wonderful lunch!

Once again, you hit it out of the ballpark.
Made this today.
Delicious, and filling.
I am a volume eater, too, so I am loving these recipes/meal ideas.
