This tuna salad recipe is an easy healthy lunch idea to make a sandwich, wrap, or put on top of a salad! Prepped in just 10 minutes, tuna salad with Greek yogurt is packed with high quality protein. Greek yogurt is a healthy substitute for mayonnaise in this recipe, and keeps the tuna moist and flavorful.


  • 2 7-oz cans of white albacore tuna (or 3 5-oz cans)
  • 1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt, 5% milk fat
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 petite dill pickles, finely diced (or 1 dill pickle spear, or 2 cornichons)
  • 1 tbsp fresh dill, finely chopped
  • Pinch of kosher salt


  1. Drain water from cans of tuna. Transfer tuna to a medium mixing bowl.
  2. Use a fork to break up the tuna into flakes.

How to serve tuna salad

You can enjoy tuna salad in many ways!

  • Sandwich or wrap
  • On top of a salad
  • With crudites and crackers
  • Inside crunchy romaine or butter lettuce for lettuce wraps


You can prepare tuna salad up to three days in advance.

Store it in a tupperware or airtight container. Give it a stir before serving once you remove it from the fridge.

Can you freeze tuna salad? I do not recommend freezing tuna salad. It’s a high moisture food, so the water may separate when frozen, altering the texture.
