Tuna Salad Cucumber Bites - Healing and Eating

I loved tuna salad growing up. When I used to make it for myself, I would always add a ton of onions. Even back then, I guess I couldn’t get enough of them. Since they’re so healthy, I don’t mind the onion breath.

Since tuna can contain a lot of mercury, avoid eating this very often. We also bought the expensive cans of Wild Albacore Tuna from Whole Foods by Wild Planet. There is no liquid or fillers added, it’s just 100% tuna and sea salt, plus the can lining is BPA free and since it’s wild, it’s non-GMO. It’s also the best choice for sustainability since it’s pole and troll caught. Shameer and I sampled some when we were at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, and liked it, so we thought we’d stroll down memory lane with an old fav – tuna salad.

Tuna Salad Cucumber Bites
  • ⅓ cup of homemade coconut oil mayo
  • ⅓ cup of thinly chopped red onions
  • 1 can of Wild Planet Wild Albacore Tuna
  • 1 cucumber sliced
  • sea salt to taste
  • fresh ground black pepper to taste
  1. Mix together coconut oil mayo, red onions, tuna, sea salt, and black pepper in a bowl set aside.
  2. Slice cucumbers, and add one small scoop approx. 1 tbsp to each cucumber.
The mayo will make or break this recipe. Which is I recommend making coconut oil mayo. This homemade mayo has a strong lemon and dijon flavor that pairs well with tuna. You can substitute the mayo, but it will change the flavor of the final dish.

  1. We love the flavor of onions in our tuna also!! I accidently pours a lot of hydrated onion in my husband’s tuna salad and he loved it! So that’s how I make now ^-^

  2. I’m sorry but this turned out waaaay too salty ? I tried adding more veggies and even another can of tuna and it was still too salty ? is it a typo or is it really an entire teaspoon of salt?

    1. I’m sorry it turned out salty for you. The amount of salt and type of salt in the homemade mayo and tuna can, may effect the saltiness. You can also omit the salt and see if you like it better.
