Tuna fish sandwich without mayo?

I have a problem with consuming products with eggs as one of its ingredients, which means no mayo. What could I substitute for mayo or, rather, how could I avoid having to eat a dry tuna melt/sandwich?

Have no fear, by any means mayonnaise is NOT a indispensable ingredient in a tuna sandwich! Mix the tuna with chopped capers, olives, onion and a drizzle of evoo. (I suggest using the water packed tuna, drain, then adding your own evoo, it will taste better, as the oils that they use for packaging is not of the highest quality.)
It is much healthier, and very tasty!!

I make an empanada filling using water packed tuna, diced tomatoes, diced jalapenos, green onion, cilantro along with chili powder, garlic and some lime juice. Cook the veggies and seasonings add the tuna. You could add evo if you would like. This would go well on a sandwich.

I think most mustards do not contain eggs...there are some that are mild flavored.
Hellmann's Dijonnaise I think only has egg whites...

Something to think about.

Mmm, urmaniacs idea sounds good....I would do something similar but make it more nicoise inspired with green beans and (dropping the eggs from nicoise) all other good salady things...

You might also want to check out bottled/jarred salad dressings to see if the ingredient list has eggs or mayo. I would think that those would work too if the flavor is pleasing to you.

I really like a fruit salsa on my tuna sandwiches. One of my favorites is cranberry and another is pineapple. Then of course there is the spiced apple. Yum to all!

The tuna vacuum packs offer an entire variety of tuna flavors and combinations. The old water/oil pack is history!
