  • 1 6-oz can Albacore tuna (140 g drained)
  • 2 tbsp *Trader Joe’s Vegan Tzatziki (30 g)
  • 1 tbsp White balsamic vinegar (15 g)
  • 2 tbsp Grainy mustard (15 g)
  • 2 tbsp Bell pepper, diced (25 g)
  • 2 tbsp Red onion, diced (25 g)
  • 2 tbsp Frank's RedHot sauce (30 g)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Pinch of fresh parsley and squeeze of lemon (optional)


  • Combine it all.
  • Eat in a sandwich or crunch wrap, or piled on crackers, chips, rice cakes, however you like! I love mine on toasted gluten-free bagel things with avocado, some sprouts or arugula, and an extra drizzle of buffalo.


If it’s not moist enough for you, add a little more vinegar for very “few macros” or of course more tzatziki or whatever you like!
*I love Trader Joe’s vegan tzatziki as a dairy-free option, but of course, you can just use mayo, Greek yogurt, ranch dressing…whatever moisture-maker you choose. This tzatziki contributes about 4.5 fat and 2.5 carbs to the recipe if you want to sub in something else!
I usually eat the whole recipe, but we’ll say it serves 2. I’ve calculated it per gram so you can have whatever portion you’d like. You can also double or triple for meal prep, and just pull out however much you’d like for a snack or meal and still log if you’re into that.
