Weight Watchers Tuna Salad
For years, tuna has been a popular diet food, and with good reason. Tuna is low in calories while high in filling protein. It’s also inexpensive and easy to use since you can keep a few cans of tuna on hand.
Our family loves this Weightwatchers Tuna Salad Recipe. I make it often as a filling lunch option for my busy days, plus it’s easy to meal prep.
Also check out our Weight Watchers Egg Salad recipe that is also zero points.
This recipe is part of our popular Holy Mess 3 Day Diet which was featured in Woman’s World magazine.
Tuna Salad Meal Prep
I like to make a large batch of this tuna salad during my weekend WW meal prep and enjoy it for my lunches during the week. If you eat this for lunch with veggies and perhaps a salad or light bread or bun, you will have plenty of points left over for breakfast, dinner, and snacks.
This recipe has an optional 2 T of light mayo or Miracle whip. While this technically has points, when spread over the whole recipe the calculation is still zero points per serving. (Click here for a printable list of the Zero point foods for 2023.)
I like to wait and add just a bit of light mayo at serving time since I really like the tangy zip and don’t want it to get lost in the tartness of the Greek yogurt.
Zero Point Tuna Salad Recipe – Quick and Easy!
This tuna salad is simple to make and tastes great. Enjoy with vegetables sticks or on a salad for a totally zero point meal, or serve with light bread, crackers (such as Good Thins), or a low carb tortilla. Count points accordingly for these items.
It’s such a convenient meal so keep a few cans of tuna in your pantry for a quick and low point meal.
Chop boiled eggs (or use our Instant Pot no-peel hard boiled eggs hack) and pickles.
Add all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stir to combine.
This meal is also great served with light bread, no salt pretzels or whole grain crackers.
Combine ingredients and you are done. How easy is that?

Frequently Asked Questions about Tuna Salad
How Do You Spice Up Tuna?
Consider adding minced onion or even fruit such as shredded apple or diced grapes. You can also experiment with new spices, such as curry or Italian seasoning.
Is Eating a Tuna Sandwich Healthy for You?
The American Heart Association suggests to eat fish at about twice a week. Fresh and canned tuna are convenient ways to get your weekly amounts of this nutrient-rich food. Just be sure to watch out for mayonnaise which makes tuna salad high in calories. Our version uses Greek yogurt to bring down the calories considerably.

Properly stored, tuna salad will last for 3 to 5 days in the refrigerator. Do not leave out of the fridge for longer than an hour.
