Tuna Salad Sandwiches

Tuna Salad Sandwiches

I love tuna salad sandwiches. Tuna salad is easy to make and comes in handy for meal prep. I like to make a double batch to keep in the refrigerator for easy lunches. Not only do I use it for sandwiches, it’s perfect in wraps, on top of a mixed green salad or dolloped on top of an avocado. It’s so versatile and this version I make is healthy because I’m using tuna packed in oil so we won’t need any mayonnaise. Growing up, my mom always used Lawry’s Seasoned Pepper in her tuna salad sandwiches, and that’s what I use to this day.

Serves 4


  • 2 – 5 oz cans of tuna packed in olive oil
  • 1/4 cup greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 2-3 celery ribs, diced
  • 3-4 heaping tbsp dill pickle relish
  • Seasoned pepper, to taste
  • Salt, to taste


Open and drain off most of the oil from the cans of tuna.* See note for helpful tip.

Flake tuna into a bowl, add the rest of the ingredients and stir it all together, taste for seasoning and adjust as needed. That’s it! In just 5 minutes, you’ve got lunch ready for the next few days!

*Here’s a tip my mom taught me that changed my life and now it will change yours. Before draining the can of tuna into the sink, remove the rubber splash guard from the disposal. This way you’re draining it right into the disposal and none of the bits of tuna will get stuck under the splash guard resulting in a horrible odor. And while we’re on the subject, you should remove the splash guard once a week and give it a good scrubbing. That guard is most likely the culprit of bad sink odors. It can be a pretty gross job so I recommend wearing rubber gloves.
