Deliciously satisfying Apple Tuna Salad made with Greek yogurt, crisp apple, toasty pecans, and no mayo! Enjoy in a sandwich, lettuce wrap, with a spoon, or on crackers. A healthy, filling lunch the table in 10 minutes!


Units Scale
  • 2-5oz cans tuna
  • 1/3 cup celery, diced (1 small stalk)
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/3 cup toasted pecans or walnuts chopped
  • 1 cup chopped apple (from 1 small Honeycrisp or Fuji)
  • 1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt (2% or full fat)
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil (or olive oil)
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 tbsp Dijon mustard (I like whole grain Dijon)
  • 1/2 tsp fine sea salt + lots of freshly ground pepper


  1. Drain tuna. Flake with a fork into a medium mixing bowl.
  2. Add celery, onion, apple, and pecans and mix to combine.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together yogurt, oil, lemon juice, Dijon, salt and pepper. Pour over tuna mixture.
  4. Mix to combine. Taste and add more salt and pepper if needed, or extra yogurt/drizzle of oil if you want more moisture. Serve with crackers, cucumber slices, or between whole grain bread!
