No ingredient volumes? What's going on!

This is the case with many of my recipes and it's because I want you to use your common sense, intuition and own personal preferences.

  • Canned Tuna (or Salmon): Choose a high-quality canned tuna for the best flavour and texture. You can opt for tuna in water or olive oil, depending on your preference.

  • Greek Yogurt or Cream Cheese: Greek yoghurt offers a lighter, tangier texture, while cream cheese provides a thicker, creamier consistency. Both are excellent choices, so select based on your desired outcome.

  • Lemon Juice: A squeeze of fresh lemon juice adds a zesty, refreshing twist to the tuna "mayo", elevating the flavours beautifully.

Optional (but delicious) Extras

  • Black Pepper: A sprinkle of black pepper can add a subtle heat and depth to the mix.

  • Mustard: A dash of mustard can introduce a tangy and slightly spicy flavour, enhancing the overall taste.

  • Herbs: Feel free to add your favourite herbs like dill, parsley, or chives for an aromatic touch.


  1. Drain the Tuna or Salmon: Open your can of tuna and thoroughly drain the liquid. Transfer the tuna to a mixing bowl.

  2. Add Greek Yogurt or Cream Cheese: For a lighter version, add an appropriate amount of Greek yoghurt to the tuna, mixing until you reach your desired consistency. For a creamier version, use cream cheese instead.

  3. Lemon Juice: Squeeze in fresh lemon juice to taste. Start with a small amount and increase according to your preference.

  4. Season and Enhance: If using, add black pepper, mustard, and/or herbs. Mix well to combine all the flavours.

  5. Taste and Adjust: Give your tuna "mayo" a taste. Adjust the lemon juice, pepper, mustard, or herbs as needed.

Serving Suggestions

  • As a Salad Topper: Scoop a generous amount on top of your favourite salad for a protein boost.

  • As a Dip: Serve with vegetable sticks, crackers, or pita chips for a satisfying snack.
