Whole30 Tuna Salad

This is so easily one of my go-to meals. It is quick and jam-packed with nutrients. We make it a lot if we haven’t planned dinner or get home from the gym late and don’t feel like cooking. Personally, I almost always have canned fish on hand, so this is a super easy meal.


  • 2 cans albacore tuna (we use Wild Planet)
  • ½ C. mushrooms, chopped
  • 2 eggs, hard-boiled, chopped (I often also have eggs hard-boiled in our refrigerator for snacks, so this is super easy for me. You could also omit the hard-boiled eggs)
  • ¼-½ C. Whole30 approved mayonnaise
  • 2 t. Spicy deli mustard (We buy ours local from the farmers market or Boetje’s)
  • 4 C. or 1 bunch of kale, spinach or chard, chopped
  • 2 T. olive oil (or oil of your choice)


  1. Heat 1T. Olive oil in a small frying pan over medium heat. Add chopped mushrooms and cook until softened. Remove from pan and set aside.
  2. Open and drain cans of tuna
  3. Chop hard-boiled eggs
  4. Rinse and chop kale
  5. Heat the other 1T. Olive oil in the skillet over medium heat and add chopped kale. I like my greens a little more al-dente, so I saute very briefly (under 2 minutes) until the edges of the kale start to wilt. You can cook the kale to your desired consistency.
  6. Mix together in a large bowl: tuna, cooked mushrooms, chopped eggs, mayonnaise and deli mustard. Voila. You have tuna salad.
  7. Split the cooked greens between 2 plates and top with ¼-½  each of the tuna salad.
