Tuna salad like many other mayo based salads are just the best for summer parties however the mayo is just too loaded with fat to be considered anything close to healthy.
So, try this recipe without any mayo and make it your new summer salad for the year.
You may start looking thinner when you eat this kind of a salad. Surely you will feel much better about yourself and within yourself!
I like to eat mine on a bed of spinach, some egg and tomato’s.
And then I top it with my House dressing which really makes no sense since it is mayo based.
Bottom line – Make your Tuna Salad without mayo it is healthier this way.
