No-Mayo Tuna Salad Recipe

Mayo-free tuna salad recipe, No-mayo tuna salad recipe, Paleo tuna salad recipeTuna salad, in my opinion, is just as good — scratch that, even better — sans mayo.

Cutting the mayonnaise not only slices the fat and calories significantly and gives the dish more nutritional value, it also highlights the taste of the tuna; why muck it up by hiding it under all that fat?

In place of the mayo I use some Dijon mustard and lemon juice, and I always throw in some fresh veggies or crisp fruit to give the salad some texture.

Added plus: This is super easy to put together and can be made in advance. I usually make a large serving of it and keep it in an airtight container in the fridge for me and husband to eat for lunch throughout the week. Yum.
