If you are using canned tuna and taking mayo and mixing for sandwhiches, let me offer an alternative. Use yogurt instead of mayo. Yes, yogurt, good taste and MUCH healthier. Also, you can try different flavor yogurts to see what strikes your fancy..I am partial towards lemon flavored...
How about Miracle Whip lite?....asphalt assault

Probably a little lower fat then regular MW, not as low as yogurt though. I'l have to try that.

Don't forget the finly diced onions and carrots, green peppers go nicely too. A dash or two of horse radish will add a nice zing as well.
Naw, just eat it out of the can....nmRom12_1

canned tuna is not that exciting for me. i also dont like mayo so "tuna salad" is out. what i uaully do to make it a bit more appetizing is throw a can onto a tortilla and add some green/red bell peppers and maybe some red onions...with maybe a bit of chipotle pesto if I'm feeling adventurous.
I agree with RomJeff Rage

A can of tuna, a couple tablespoons of Miracle Whip, some diced red onion, crushed pecans, celery, garlic, lemon pepper, a couple drops of soy sauce, and a little fresh rosemary. Mix it up and put it over a freshly sliced tomato with a little basil. I sometimes leave out various items to change the flavor.

I also like to add boiled egg, diced pickles (sweet pickle) and maybe chop a little apple (red delicious) into it.

Check out this site:
"1001 things to do w/ tuna". Some sound pretty good. Some do not (Tuna Banana shake????).
Have fun.

These are terrific! A bit of work, but oh so good! I use fresh and grill it; still wonderful with high quality canned.

... tuna, raw...

If you've got access to an Asian specialty food market... maguro with a bit of vinegared rice, wasabe and soy sauce... is relatively easy to make and a great way of enjoying real tuna... you can also cook a steak as well and retain more of the natural flavor than any canned product I know of.

Another Tuna RecipeJFR

I can't resist... I love this fairly quick/easy tuna meal:

Large bed of rice (brown or white, hot)
1 can drained tuna (albacore of coarse) spread over rice
1 cup steamed broccali spread over tuna
1 cup steamed cauliflour spread over tuna
a couple shakes of granulated garlic
a couple shakes of lemon pepper
top with grated or thinly sliced cheese of choice
melt the cheese in broiler and serve (careful of the hot plate)
