Post Tuna Salad w/out Mayo

I am trying to find a way to season my tuna without using mayo. I happen to like the starkist packed tuna with the lemon pepper and sweet & spicey seasonings.

My question is how can I achieve this same great taste without having to purchase starkist tuna packs?

Well, lemon pepper...


Are there any other ingredients listed on the pouch?

I have used the white albacore tuna chunked up on lettuce with Italian or Ceasar dressing.
Add a few chopped tomatoes, bacon bits, maybe some chopped sweet red pepper, olives and homemade croutons...parmesan cheese curls...I could go on and on.

Try squeezing a little lemon juice on the tuna...seems to make it more flavorful.

There is also a delicious, calorie free dressing called "Hendrixson's" that is great on tuna, salmon, tomatoes, peppers, etc. It is a mix of Balsamic vinegar, herbs & seasonings, and just a touch of olive oil. Krogers carries it, and some other stores as well.

I'm not a tuna lover, but I really enjoy it if it's got a few shakes of hot sauce in it. I'd also add the lemon pepper for that extra zing.

PS - very nice photo you have in the photo gallery! Nice to meet you, and welcome to Discuss Cooking!

I can't stand mayo so I just add lemon juice, salt, and pepper to my tuna. I like it with a little celery too. I usually skip the bread and roll it all up in a lettuce leaf, not because I am into the low carb thing though. That is how my uncle did it and I have been doing it that way since I was a little kid.

How about the Classic, Niciose Salad (sp?). I've used a couple different dressing, a sun-dried tomato viniagrette, and basic Italian dressing.

If you can afford it, try grilling (or blackening) a Tuna Steak to medium, then slicing and serving on a salad, either the Niciose, or a good Caesar.
