Healthy Tuna Salad Recipe

This Healthy Tuna Salad recipe is one of my favorite lunches. If you are packing it to go, try packing the tuna mixture in a tupperware and bringing the pita separately, then combining them at work so it doesn’t get soggy. Or – toast your bread first!

Healthy Tuna Salad Recipe


  • 1 small (2.6 oz) packet chunk light tuna (packed in water)
  • Greek or regular plain yogurt
  • Dijon mustard
  • Balsamic Vinaigrette (optional)
  • 1 celery stalk, chopped
  • Broccoli slaw
  • Feta cheese (optional)
  • Fresh spinach leaves
  • 1 whole wheat pita


Place tuna in a bowl. Add a squirt of dijon mustard and a spoonful of yogurt, in the ratio of about 2 parts yogurt to 1 part mustard, and drizzle a little balsamic vinaigrette on top (about a tsp).

Add the chopped celery and broccoli slaw (LOVE this stuff… makes any sandwich instantly more awesome and crunchy) and mix it all up.

Heat or toast a pita, place the tuna mixture inside. Add a few crumbles of feta cheese on top, and then cover with a huge handful of spinach.

Close it up and ENJOY! :)

    What is brocolli slaw? I don’t think I’ve ever seen that/heard of it.

    This morning I wanted to make my husband a tuna fish sandwich using what we had in our fridge….I specifically wanted to use my broccoli slaw before it went bad. I KNEW I’d be able to find a recipe! I even did a happy dance when the first entry that popped up on Google was one from your page!

      Aw yay! This is an old favorite – hope you love it! :) Broccoli slaw is great on all sandwiches – adds nice bulk/fiber and crunch, and doesn’t impact the flavor!

    Random question Anne, but how do you toast your pitas?
