I'm trying to think of ways to make my tuna healthier. I have the low fat mayo, but I'd prefer to use something else.

I've considered plain yogurt, but I put pickles in my tuna, and I worry that it would sour the yogurt.

Has anyone tried to make tuna with a laughing cow wedge instead of mayo? I just thought of it.... no idea how it would taste though, so I wanted to ask if anyone else has done it first! Do you think that would be ok with pickles?

Any other idea on what I can use instead of mayo while keeping the tuna moist? I've heard of olive oil, but I would probably need way too much, and I'm not too sure I like the idea of oily tuna.

I used fat free ranch in my tuna the other day and put it in a wrap. It was pretty good!

I always put avocado in my tuna sandwiches because it keeps it moist and its also quite tasty.

You can use fat free sour cream, plain Greek yogurt, mustard or some lite dressing. you really don't need much to make it stick together.

I use mayo with olive oil, just a little... and some mustard to help get the consistency I want.

i mix hummus into tuna or canned salmon - yum!

I use hummus but only because I looove it.

I mix mine with mustard. Or apple cider vinegar. Most of the time I just eat it drained from the can on crackers or with spinach.

Avocado! I mash half an avocado, mix in tuna and add some chilli - fantastic.
Not a lot lower in calories, but soooo good for you!

I use mustard and a little olive oil. A little goes a long way. I expected it to be gross after a lifetime of mayo-heavy tuna but it's really good :)

My bodybuilding friend told me he eats his tuna with mustard and I thought it sounded gross .... and then I tried it and I like it.
Not good if you're watching your sodium though.

I love the idea of mixing avocado with it. Sounds delicious.

I read on the message boards the other day, that someone uses the tostitos spinach artichoke dip with their tuna instead of mayo. I haven't tried it yet, but it sounded yummy! I like pickles with my tuna too!

I just eat the tuna out of the can with a spoon.

I make mine with onion and some celery and mix in sugar free pickle relish.....very yummy. The relish holds it together.

I think the laughing cow cheese would be amazing with it...

Here's my version of tuna salad:

1 can solid white tuna
juice of 1 lime
1-2 T light Buttermilk ranch dressing
1 t parsley
Dash of Lemon Pepper seasoning

The lime juice is the key in this salad and very good in a wrap. Hope you try it and like it!

I've made mine with a tinnnnyyyy tiny amount of canola oil mayo (since thats what my mom buys but olive oil is probably better for you) and then some wishbone balsamic italian dressing and a lot of pepper. It was sooo good. especially with lettuce

Yum, will have to try that!!

Since you like pickles try just using dill pickle relish and celery diced tiny! I don't like anything with a real strong fish taste and the dill helps calm that down.

I've mixed my tuna with cottage cheese! Sounds kind of gross but its good. And is quite filling. Not sure about the pickles though.

Let me know if you try it and what u think!

Good luck!
