Miracle whip/mayo-1/2 and half-only til moist
Hard-boiled eggs-for one small can of tuna, I use only two eggs
1 tbsp. Relish
1 tsp mustard

I don't eat tuna because it reminds me of cat food. My mother used to always eat it for lunch with Catalina salad dressing(just a little). She says it tastes good. My husband prefers the normal way to make tuna salad with mayo.

Pickle relish
a tiny bit of ff mayo, add a slice of cheese and a thick slice of tomato, broil open face sandwiches.
Chopped apple sounds really yummy, I'm going to try that soon!

I don't use mayo either. I use:
* lemon juice
* broccoli slaw
* shredded carrots
* finely chopped celery (sometimes celery seed)
* diced tomato
* (sometimes) chopped walnuts

I love adding Yofu to mine, and a little splash malt vinegar. Beacuse the yofu is so low fat you can put lots in and make it all squishy!

-- (or lemon zest)

If you like sharp cheddar cheese, add a 1 ounce slice to your tuna sandwich. Surprisingly good--even reduced fat cheese tastes pretty good! I also agree with chopped egg whites, celery, dill pickle relish, chopped green or purple onion, even sliced black or green olives.

I can't believe no one has suggested ranch dressing!!! If you use the low/non fat variety it's not nearly bad for you and oh so yummy.

ranch dressing all the way :)

I found a great recipe from a cookbook that I have. 5tbs olive oil, 1.5 tbs red wine vinegar, chopped basil, chopped sun dried tomatos, chopped kalamata olives (can leave out if watching salt intake), sliced green onions, salt & pepper to taste. Put into a whole wheat pita or whole wheat roll & top with arugala or spinach leaves. NO MAYO!

I put cottage cheese, like 2 Tbsp for a 5 oz can. It gives the creamy without the fat and calories from mayo.

Lemon pepper & cubed green apples really spice it up! I mix in onions, celery, lemon pepper and green apples and chow down.

Seems an unlikely combo but seriously try it! The tartness and slight sweetness of the apple really makes it great.

Well I do eat my tuna with a small amount of mayonnaise, though I still keep it pretty "dry." But other than the mayo what do I put in it?

A small splash of red wine vinegar, a small dash of sugar or sweetener, a drop or three of Tobasco sauce, a little lemon juice, a little onion powder (or chopped onions if I have the time.)

Or herbs and spices - rosemary, thyme, lemon pepper, some Mrs. Dash or whatever from my spice rack I'm in the mood for. To know if a seasoning will go well with tuna I open up the jar and hold it over the tuna and take a big I get the tuna smell and the spice smell at the same time and if I like the way it smells together I put a little in!

Instead of mayo use fat free greek yogurt (plain, of course!). It's very tangy -- think tzatziki sauce (greek yogurt is the base). I like to add fresh dill, maybe some capers and for texture, fresh red bell peppers and cucumber.

I leave out the mayo but add tomato slices, cucumbers, onion.

My tuna recipe I make to eat solo- NO BREAD NEEDED!

Relish or Sweet Gherkins
Red Peppers
Miracle Whip

And if I am feeling fat, I will add hard boiled eggs

I use mustard. Or, I buy the kind packed in oil and just add herbs to it - basil and/or oregano and/or pepper.

Blech. I can't stand the smell, taste or look of mayo. YUCK! I just eat tuna plain. I like it like that. I add some scallions or chopped onions sometimes.

How else do you prepare tuna, if you eat it?
