    Re: Mayo

    I know this is an old thread, but I was surprised that no one mentioned substituting avocado for mayonnaise. Delicious, if you can get over the green color!

    Also, check out Polar tuna. It is on the more expensive side, but it is solid albacore, like the tuna you'd remember as a kid. Also, preservative free. I've seen it occasionally in the grocery store, but Amazon has it as subscribe & save item.

    Mayo

    Thanks Simplicity, I didn't realize mayo was made with vinegar.

    Mayo has vinegar in it. I have made tuna salad with homemade hummus, or I blend up some cottage cheese with some ic friendly herbs and some olive oil to make a sauce.
    I think it's really what you can tolerate. Hope that helps!!

    Re: Tuna

    Is there any reason why a person with IC should avoid mayonnaise? l like tuna, but I always make it with a little mayo.

    If you have a trader joes in your area the tuna there is good. Only tuna and salt. It's the blue can.

    tpronti I buy it at the healthfood store. You can check the regular grocery store for canned tuna and read the ingredients,I believe some are IC friendly. I eat mainly organic and buy most of my food at the healthfood store so I am not that familiar with regular brands.

    tpronti Yes just read the ingredient list to make sure there are no hidden ingredients. I use Raincoast which has tuna and salt. You can rinse the tuna to reduce the sodium. You can use one of my salad dressing recipes posted under dressings to put in the tuna. Suggestions as listed above.

    I use Laughing Cow cream cheese to make tuna salad. It helps hold the tuna together and adds a nice flavor.

    This would also work well with Valley Fresh Organic Canned Chicken.
    I usually mix the canned chicken with Philly Light Cream Cheese, a tiny bit of Marie's Lite Creamy Ranch dressing, and chopped celery or red bell pepper.
