Great tuna salad. I also added some eggs and used low fat sour cream instead of mayo. Very easy to make. Thank you.



Nice take on tuna salad and great for a low-carb light meal! I loved the concept, but I did change this up as I thought the amounts of the ingredients listed might be a bit much. For a 6 oz. can of tuna I used about 2 Tbsp. of Hellman's light mayo, 1 Tbsp. of chopped celery, 2 tsp. of chopped red onion, a little garlic powder, salt, pepper, and a splash of red wine vinegar. I let that chill while I hollowed out a large tomato and made a bed of lettuce on a plate. I then spooned the chilled tuna salad inside the tomato and served it with a couple slices of melba toast. This turned out to be a really good low fat lunch that I didn't have to feel guilty about!



This is my favorite tuna salad recipe from here. I don't eat onions, so I left those out, and used fat-free mayo, but other than that, this recipe is perfect. Quick, easy, simple, and tastes great. Spoon some into a hollowed out tomato and it's a perfect meal for dieters and those who just like a good tuna salad. I gave it 5 stars in all categories. Since I started making this and taking it to work on our pot-luck events, it's a solid hit with everyone!
