The healthy tuna salad that we make all the time at home for quick lunches! Delicious between toasted bread or wrapped in lettuce.


Units Scale
  • 2-5oz cans tuna
  • 1/2 cup sauerkraut*
  • 2 tbsp quality mayonnaise (or full fat Greek yogurt)
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped dill (optional, I used freeze-dried dill)
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped bell pepper
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped celery
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt (optional depending on how salty your sauerkraut is, taste before adding)


  1. Drain tuna. Place in a large mixing bowl and flake with a fork. Add the rest of the ingredients and mash together with a fork. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed. Sometimes I add a sprinkle of garlic powder!
  2. Serve between two slices of toasted bread with lettuce.


*If you don't have sauerkraut, you can use finely chopped pickles plus some of the pickle liquid.
