Versatile and incredible: mayo-free healthy tuna salad spread

Get ready for your new favorite spread, because this recipe for healthy tuna salad spread contains no mayo and is so tasty! I li-la-like this mayo-free healthy tuna salad spread so much and guess what.. my hubby is the one to thank for. My hubby was craving for some “bad” tuna salad spread on his piece of bread, but once he figured out we only had clean and healthy ingredients in our refrigerator, he got creative! And I got hungry too. Sharing is caring, so I’m spreading the spread.. uhh word 😉

This mayo-free healthy tuna salad spread recipe makes a great healthy, quick and easy weekday light lunch or snack. I think it’s an incredible versatile dish and I prefer to spread some protein crackers with a thick layer of tuna-party. But we have also combined this fresh tuna spread in a cold pasta meal and salad. Enough reasons to try it out! And the good news is: it’s so easy and fast to make with just a few ingredients.

“Super filling, heart healthy and so super yummy!”

TIP: Whenever I make us some mayo-free healthy tuna salad spread, I make some extra and keep it in the refrigerator. That way, my hubby and me can enjoy it for some more moments later that week.

The sun is out girls, celebrate it with this delicious tuna salad spread!
