I’m a big fan of tuna salad but most contain a lot of mayo that I can’t eat and often this makes them overly gooey. I prefer some texture and tantalizing flavors that tell me I’m eating real food instead of tuna flavored paste.
The tuna that you use will make a big difference in this recipe because the tuna is front and center. I use a delicious tuna ventresca that is more expensive but worth it when you want to taste the tuna.
- 1 teaspoon dried dill (substitute with another herb if you don’t like dill)
- 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
- 1/4 teaspoon dried onion
- Pinch of garlic powder and salt
- 1/2 teaspoon olive oil
- 2 teaspoons yogurt (I used goat and it was delicious)
- 6-7 oz. tuna
Just drain the tuna and mix the ingredients together in a small bowl. I paired it with fresh parsley and lettuce on a mini french baguette, alongside a small salad.
It was very nice with a slight hint of creaminess. If you want it a little more creamy, add more 1-2 more teaspoons of yogurt.

Ooh, good idea with the yogurt instead of mayo. I’m going to try that sometime soon!
