We do not store mayonnaise at home as we do not often use it. However, I sometimes feel that it would be convenient if there were one in the fridge.
The feeling came to me last week. It was Easter Weekend and I was making some nibbles for a platter. I just thought that something with mayonnaise flavour would add variety to the platter. And then, this idea came to me – why not using Yogurt instead! That would be much healthier!
My new Tuna Spread without mayonnaise can be served as part of a platter, served with crackers, veggie sticks, or can be used for sandwiches. Even though there is not mayonnaise involved, I guarantee it still has richness. It is super easy to make as well, so it will be a good recipe to have in your hand. Hope you like it 🙂
1 tin of Tuna in spring water (185g) – drain the water
2 Tablespoons of Plain Yogurt
1/2 Tablespoon of Lemon Juice
1 Teaspoon of Dijon Mustard
1 Pickled Onion – finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon of the liquid from a jar of pickled onions
A pinch of Sea Salt and Black pepper to season
1 small spring onions – finely chopped
In a small bowl, mash the tuna with a fork. Add all other ingredients to the tuna. Mash and mix all together until it becomes very smooth. Season it with sea salt and black pepper to taste.
Note: If you do not normally have picked onions in your pantry, you can use a small amount of capers instead.
