I know tuna salad is a divisive topic – ya either love it or ya hate it. Personally, I love it. However, not all tuna salad is created equal. There’s nothing worse than a watery, flavorless tuna situation. However, with the right ingredients added, tuna salad can be a healthy, delicious addition to your weekly lunch or dinner rotation. This dill pickle tuna salad is my personal favorite!

Tuna is combine with creamy mayo, tart green onion, and lots of tangy chopped dill pickles for a flavor combo that’s out of this world. Serve on a toasted bun with some lettuce and tomato and you have an awesome sandwich that’s anything but boring. 

Making Dill Pickle Tuna Salad

I love this tuna salad because it’s so simple to whip up so you can have it ready in just a few minutes. Whether it’s a busy week day where you barely have time for lunch, or a weeknight where you’re just not sure what to make, you can have the sandwich ready in a pinch. You’ll need:

  • a low carb bun or sandwich bread of choice (or you can use lettuce if you want a no carb option)
  • 1 can chunk light tuna in water, drained 
  • Salt + pepper to taste 
  • 1 Tsp Dijon mustard 
  • 2 tbsp light Mayo 
  • 1/4 cup chopped dill pickles (no sugar added)
  • 2 tbsp chopped green onion 
  • Lettuce and tomato (optional)

Drain the water from the tuna, and add in Dijon mustard, mayo, chopped pickles, and green onion. Mix and then seasoned with salt and pepper to taste. Toast to your bun or your bread, and then layer on your tuna salad, some lettuce and tomato, and that’s it! Enjoy!

Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
