Curried Tuna Salad

Do yourself a huge favor and make some Whole30 approved homemade mayo this week and with that mayo, do yourself another favor and make a batch of this amazing Curried Tuna Salad. Curried Tuna Salad

My newest obsession has been homemade mayonnaise. I cannot believe that I did an entire Whole30 challenge before without having a batch of this in the fridge the entire time! It is SO easy to make and you will find it tastes SO much better than store-bought mayo, I think it’s a texture thing because let me tell you, homemade mayonnaise is like a soft pillowy cloud of deliciousness and takes this recipe to a whole other level.

Enjoy this Curried Tuna Salad!

  • 2 5-oz cans albacore tuna in water, drained (no salt added)
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/4 cup loosely chopped green onion white and green parts
  • 1/2 cup of red seedless grapes halved
  • 2 tbsp. Whole30 approved mayonnaise I use homemade or Primal Kitchen's
  • 1 tsp. curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/4 tsp. minced garlic


  • Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, using a fork stir to combine all ingredients until just blended.
  • Served over a bed of baby spinach (I've also had over Organic Girl Supergreens) then drizzle with olive oil and a squeeze of some fresh lemon juice, salt and pepper.


You can store this in the fridge for up to a week, it's even better as it sits and sometimes I add a little extra lemon juice prior to serving if I think it needs it!

    It’s soooo good! The only recommendation I have is to leave out the garlic

    This delicious! But I would cut the salt down to 1/4 tsp or add none at all. I ended up having to make another batch minus the salt and add it to the original batch to make it edible for me. I always attempt to make a recipe “as is” the first time around, but I think salt should always be “to taste”.
