No Mayo Tuna and Egg Salad Recipe

No Mayo Tuna and Egg Salad Recipe

This is a healthy alternative to most Tuna salads that are packed with mayo. I myself never really liked mayo and when I do have it it is always in moderation.  Needless to say I loved this recipe when I discovered it. This no mayo tuna and egg salad recipe is great ontop of greens, or on anything really. My favorite is on a corn tortilla with some chopped avocado. Let me know what you decide to eat it with because I can imagine it would go good on quite a few other things. The best thing is it is high in protein and what ever you decide to eat it with is going to be healthier than the mayo-filled alternative.

**Keep in mind that the salad serving size is half of what is made. The image just shows one way I eat it and that is what you see in the top photo. I sometimes just eat it by it self but the possibilities are endless i’m sure. I just don’t want there to be any confusion as to the size of the serving.
