Completely Different Tuna & Egg Salad (No Mayo)

Total Time

Not your usual tuna or egg salad, this can be enjoyed as is, in a sandwich, on top of greens, or any other way that sounds good to you. If you want to add a touch of mayo for creaminess, go ahead- but it's plenty good without! You can change up the ingredients to suit what you have on hand, or what you like- chopped pickles instead of capers, oil packed tuna instead of water packed, different herbs, shallot instead of green onion... This is just how I first made it based on what was in my kitchen.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine tuna, eggs, capers, pepper, onion and tarragon gently in a bowl.
  2. Whisk together vinegar, oil, salt and pepper in another small bowl.
  3. Fold the dressing into the tuna mixture. Taste for seasoning, and add more salt or pepper as needed.
  4. Chill for 1 hour for flavors to combine, then serve.

This is very different and very good. I made 100% as per recipe and I really like the interesting combination of flavours. Good protein meal.

Different take on the tuna salad, for sure. I liked it very much. I added some parsley and had to use dried tarragon, as that is all I had on hand. I had this for lunch, as is, with some crackers. Made for Spring Photo Tag 2012. :)
