Whole30 Tuna Salad Recipe

We love Whole30 protein-packed salads – chicken and tuna salad are incredibly versatile. Put them in lettuce wraps or put a dollop on a green salad for a healthy, tasty meal.

Today we’re sharing out own Whole30 tuna salad recipe. We especially love this one for lunches!


  • 3 cans of 6oz Tuna
  • 1/2 cup of Whole30 mayo (or Avocado Oil Mayo)
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 2 celery stalks, diced
  • 1/2 cup grape tomatoes, diced
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

Drain tuna and place in bowl. Mix tuna with Whole30 mayo, then add veggies and spices. Mix and enjoy! Eat alone or serve on bed of lettuce.

Note: If you don’t have paleo mayo on hand or don’t feel like making your own, you can often substitute mashed up avocado. Mash up 1-2 large avocados (plus a little lime juice to keep from going brown). Mix with tuna as you would with mayo, and you should be able to reach that same wet, mushy consistency to keep the tuna salad together!
