Mayo-Free Tuna?

I want to start eating more tuna sandwiches, etc., but don't like the salads that include mayo. I know there are a world of options out there, but am curious to hear which are some hound-favorites. Thanks in advance.

  1. Try a Nicoise salad. You can use the canned variety or fresh tuna.

      I like to sear fresh tuna from the fish dud, slice it, and throw it on some good crusty bread with avocado, onion, spinach and a little honey mustard or dijon mustard.

      Or, you can get Sushi grade tuna and make a nice tartare.

      Also, I just love fresh seared tuna in a wrap with red onion, spinach and goat cheese.

    2. try italian tuna...peppers, onions, olives, seasoning, oil, vinegar...

      1. Try using avocado instead of mayonnaise.

        1. I like to mix the tuna with Trader Joe's Roasted Red pepper spread - I bet a lot of other dips and tapenades would work well with this. Mashed avocado makes an awesome sub for mayo, too.

          1. Is it because you don't like the taste? If it's becasue of the fat try veganase. It's awesome.

              I believe Vegenaise has as much fat as regular mayo, or nearly. They might have a light version. It is really tasty though. We used it for my son when he was a baby, to accomodate an egg allergy.
