I hope this week is going well for you so far! I have been looking for inexpensive crafty items so I can improve the quality of my photos. I know there are a ton of great stuff on Etsy and local craft stores and I can’t wait to experiment with different props. I mentioned on my Instagram recently that I spend more time working on photos than writing a blog post. I’m starting to realize that it is a lot of work! Photography is still very new to me and I really like learning new tips and techniques!

Anyway, I went on a big grocery haul a couple days ago and stocked up on many kitchen staple items so I can work on creating more recipes for you! I don’t know about you, but I like to make dishes that are simple. I also like to make a healthier version of things you find at the store. That’s why I decided to create this no mayo tuna salad! I put it in a bagel sandwich one day and ate it as a dip the next day and have been hooked! Give it a try!

No Mayo Tuna Salad

Yield: 2


  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 3/4 cup cilantro
  • 1/4 of a medium avocado
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • one 7 ounce can of lean Albacore tuna
  • 1/3 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/3 cup chopped celery
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground mustard
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Combine Greek yogurt, cilantro, avocado, and lemon juice in a food processor. Blend for 1-2 minutes until you reach a smooth consistency. Empty the blended mix into a bowl.
  2. Drain a can of tuna and add it to the avocado blend. Add the remaining ingredients to the bowl and mix well. If the tuna chunks are large, break them up with a spoon and continue mixing with all of the ingredients.
  3. When the ingredients are thoroughly mixed, you are ready to serve! You can save any leftovers in an air-tight container and store it in the fridge.

  1. I love your no mayo version of tuna salad. Avocados are one of my favorite foods!

    In regards to the food photography, it is still the hardest part of blogging for me. I wish I had more time to read and practice more but there just isn’t enough hours in the day. I will say that after a year and half of doing it, the most important thing I have learned is to utilize good light. Find the right spot in your house at the right time of day (not direct light but not too early either) and make sure your shooting surface is above the window. Also, Tasty Food Photography from Pinch of Yum is a super helpful book. :)
