Gluten Free Tuna Salad Recipe Variations
There are so many, many variations of tuna salad. And we’ve tried quite a few (we also like this protein-packed tuna salad recipe version with boiled eggs), but most of the time we go back to this version I created a few years ago.

The great thing about this recipe is that it’s budget-friendly. And we pretty much always have everything on hand.
- 4 oz tuna packed in water
- 1 medium apple Gala is yummy
- 1/2 cup red onion
- 1/2 cup sweet corn
- 1/2 cup sweet pickle relish
- 3 tbsp mayonnaise
- 1 gluten free bagel
Bonus Tip: If you want to cut down on calories, you can substitute Greek yogurt for the mayonnaise and it’ll still be yummy. And I’ve also made the tuna salad with 50/50 ratio of mayo and Greek yogurt. It works really well, too.
At the end of the day it’s really your own preference that counts. But if you’re like us and like to splurge now and then, you’ll enjoy the tuna salad with mayo.
Tuna Salad Prep Tip:
Just a quick prep tip. Instead of making the tuna salad in classic mixing bowl and then putting it into a food storage container like this one, try making it directly in this Pyrex storage container with a lid. This way you’ll simply pop a lid on and the leftovers directly into your fridge.

After years of struggling with hypothyroidism and weight gain, I am still amazed how ditching gluten has had such a positive impact on my weight and my life.
