Scott loves tuna salad. With extra mayo. In fact I made a bunch of this earlier this week and he ate it on the way to work this morning. He likes to go to Whole Foods and buy it, and I think like a lot of people, he assumes that just because it’s from Whole Foods – it’s healthy.

It isn’t.

Store bought tuna salad is still full of rancid vegetable oils, GMOs, preservatives and sketchy ingredients. Making your own is cheaper and infinitely healthier. And in my opinion (aka the correct opinion), my recipe  for paleo tuna salad taste better.


  • 12 oz tuna
  • 1 cup homemade mayo (I love me some mayo, you can use less)
  • 1/3 red onion, diced
  • 2 celery stalks, diced
  • salt and peppa


  1. Combine everything until it’s completely mixed.
  2. It’ s easy ya’ll.



  1. This looks really good! Any idea where I can buy soy-free tuna in a can?? All of them seem to have soy!

    • Costco carries soy-free canned tuna, but it is albacore, so max of 1 can per week (mercury). I have not checked at Whole Foods or New Seasons Markets
