I was skeptical, but now I am a fan. This recipe gives you the creamy feel of tuna salad without all the empty calories of mayo. I accidentally added too much yogurt, so my first attempt was a little tart and runny, but still edible. The real deal should be outstanding. Give it a shot! Submitted by:

I followed the recipe but doubled it. I also added salt and pepper and more red onion. But is is good if you like tuna salad. I was worried because no eggs but honestly I did not miss them. I too but the cottage cheese in my blender to make it smooth. Submitted by:

I have to have sugar free sweet pickle relish in mine. But it's a great idea to use the yogurt and cottage cheese. Submitted by:

It was a little bland. I added pickled red onions, garlic salt, pepper, and a little bit of Heinz 57. Really good Submitted by:

This sounds delicious and different. I saved the recipe in my collection and will rate once I make it. I will try reducing the cottage cheese a little to reduce sodium. Submitted by:

I knocked out the cottage cheese (don't need two proteins in one meal) and upped the yogurt. And I used pickle juice instead of lemon juice. Pretty good. Submitted by:

It happens that I have been making just this mayonnaise-less version for years; thought I invented it! It's phenomenal, isn't it! Sometimes I add hard-boiled eggs, or egg whites, just for the flavor and texture--not because it needs any more protein; and scallions, parsley, herbs and chopped pickl Submitted by:
