I’m not gonna lie, I love mayonnaise, but I know there are so many people who can’t even stomach the smell, let alone the taste. Two of the ultimate comfort foods, chicken salad and tuna salad, are usually made with mayo and most people won’t even try these salads because of that one ingredient. However, there are different foods you can use to substitute mayo in chicken salad and tuna salad. Take a look at the list below.

These foods can be used for either chicken or tuna salad, it just depends on personal preference! 

1. Avocado (mashed)

2. Greek yogurt

3. Dijon mustard mixed with a little honey

4. Hummus

5. Cottage cheese

6. Barbeque sauce

7. Tzatziki sauce

8. White beans (mashed)

9. Sour cream

10. Vinaigrette

11. Olive oil with salt and pepper

If any of these peak your interest, simply make up your own creation or find a recipe that includes your substitute of choice.
