3 Ingredient Greek Yogurt Tuna Salad

Tuna salad is a summer favorite in my house!  I gave the classic version a makeover with my 3 Ingredient Greek Yogurt Tuna Salad recipe.

Hi peeps!

It’s easy to forget about the humble tuna salad.  If you get it out it’s often laced with too much mayo (or even Miracle Whip- yikes!) and not enough flavor.  It can seem old school and plain ole’ boring.

But with a few simple swaps it’s a dish to really remember.  This 3 Ingredient Greek Yogurt Tuna Salad recipe is so tasty and healthy, it’s sure to be a frequent visitor at your table.

My version uses greek yogurt and the short cut of pickle relish!  It gives it just enough something-something to make it interesting.  I’m a big pickle fan, so I add a lot but you can of course adjust that to your personal tastes.  My grandmother taught me to use it and it stuck.  I think it’s a southern thing?

You can then add salt and pepper to taste or even a little celery salt if you’d like.  It somehow comes out tasting very close to the real deal but better.

The way I make my Greek Yogurt Tuna Salad recipe it gets even more protein and probiotics from the greek yogurt.  It goes from being something indulgent to a dish that is completely healthy.

Serve it as shown with crisp veggies and nut-based crackers, in a wrap or in a sandwich with whole grain bread, dark-green lettuce and a ripe summer tomato slice.

Canned tuna in water really can be a great choice in moderation (because of mercury) because a single serving is low in calories AND has nearly 16 grams of protein.  As someone who eats mainly plant-based I like having that burst of protein in my diet sometimes.

Plus it’s fast, inexpensive and easy which is exactly what I’m looking for in my lunch most of the time.

    Ooh I love the Greek yogurt idea. Also, pickle relish is a great addition to tuna salad or egg salad!

    I’m not much of a mayo fan so I love subbing greek yogurt. Love the idea to serve this with crackers and veggies!
