Peas and Love, Even if You Hate Mayo

Susans Light and Clean Tuna Salad

Susan's Light and Clean Tuna Salad

By Alex Tillotson, contributor

January 8th, 2013

Don't hate me for saying this, but I hate jarred mayo. Homemade aioli, I'm good with. There's just something about packaged mayonnaise, even the "good" brand, that gets my gag reflex every time. I think it's the combination of the eggy, tangy smell and that jiggly texture. Even the wet "plop" sound it makes when you spoon it into a recipe makes me squeamish.

Fine, enough about the mayo already!

Susan is here to offer a little peas and love for all you mayo-haters like me with this light and clean take on tuna salad. Her blog is gorgeous and she's all about lightening up tried-and-true classics like mayonnaise-masked tuna salad. Her version is dressed with Dijon mustard, soy sauce and cider vinegar and gets its freshness and crunch from celery, parsley and sunflower seeds.

In addition to her other fantastic recipes like Spinach and Goat Cheese Frittata, Dairy-Free Creamy Cauliflower Soup and 15-Minute Na'an Pizzas, she's also got some awesome recommendations and tips for style, home and life. Check out peas and love today for healthy inspiration in the kitchen and beyond.
