Mayo substitute in tuna sandwich

Hi! I donít care for mayo, so what are good substitutes for mayo in tuna sandwiches? I tried just relish, but it falls apart. I did some research and found mustard, avocado, yogurt, and bbq as suggestions, but I want to see what people actually like. Thanks!

Do you like Miracle Whip? It has a different taste than mayo but still has the creamy texture I like for tuna salad. I use it with dill pickle relish and chopped onions and celery.

I cannot tolerate mayo, so it's light sour cream for me with a little squeeze of lemon mixed in. Works like a charm!

I have used avocado and liked it. I chop up dill pickle in there, too.

I tried mustard and it is disgusting!

The only think is, avocado discolors and looks not very appetizing by the time lunch rolls around when I make my lunch ahead of time.

I actually love Miracle Whip, but haven't had it in 20 some years because its chemical craziness. I use plain Greek yogurt in place of sour cream/mayo/Miracle Whip.

I've used peppercorn ranch salad dressing in my tuna salad and sandwiches. You're making me hungry!

I donít like mayo either.

If you donít care about calories, cream cheese is delicious.

I do care about calories, so I mix tuna with lemon and pepper and eat it in a crisp lettuce wrap.

I mix a little dill pickle juice with avocado and then add the tuna and chopped dill pickles. The pickle juice seems to help with the discoloration, but it was still a little weird for me at first eating green tuna salad. I love the taste, though!

I follow Hungry Girl (she goes low calorie) and she always recommends the Laughing Cow cheese. It's the one that isn't refrigerated - comes in a round container and inside the cheese is a soft cheese in individual triangular wedges. It comes in several flavors. I like the Creamy Light Swiss.

It's a very tasty mayonnaise substitute and supposed to be healthier. I've found it at a large health foods store and at the supermarket in the cold section.

mayo substitute on tuna sandwhich

Thank you all! I'll try some of those for sure.



I have tried the Veganaise and it's okay I guess. I just don't use it much and I essentially toss almost a full jar by the time it expires. I use avocado, greek yogurt, and sour cream more often, so I'll try those the next time I want a tuna sandwich.
