Cranberry Tuna Salad

Cranberry Tuna Salad at Create With Joy

When the temperatures soar, and you’re looking for something quick and refreshing to serve your family, try my family’s specialty Cranberry Tuna Salad!

The first time I ever tasted Cranberry Tuna Salad was at Whole Foods. Now, I’m not a huge tuna fan in general, but I love this dish, so my husband and I worked on recreating it. None of the recipes we tried turned out right – most were too tart – so we kept experimenting until we created our own addictive version of this recipe! The dish flies out of our kitchen so fast, we created two variations of it – a regular sized version – and a crowd pleaser version – so you can pick the size that best fits your family’s needs!

Ingredients – Regular Version:

2 Cans of Tuna
2-4 Tablespoons of Fat Free Mayonnaise
2 Tablespoons of Green Onions, Chopped
3 Tablespoons of Dried Cranberries – Coarsely Chopped
2 Teaspoons of Granulated Sugar

Ingredients – Crowd Pleaser Version:

1 Large Can of Tuna – 4 Pounds, 2 ½ Ounces (available at Costco)
1 Small Jar of Fat Free Mayonnaise
2 Bunches of Green Onions, Chopped
3 Packages of Dried Cranberries – About 10 Ounces, Coarsely Chopped
3 Tablespoons of Granulated Sugar


1. Mix ingredients together in a large bowl.
2. Refrigerate until serving time.

Serving Suggestions:

1.Serve a sandwich on toasted bread, a croissant, a baguette, or your favorite roll!

2. Cut a melon in half; fill with Cranberry Tuna Salad and serve!

3. Serve the Cranberry Tuna Salad stuffed in a lettuce wedge!
