This Weight Watchers Tuna Salad with Egg recipe is perfect for when you’re looking for something tasty to fill you up and stay on plan!
For me, being on a low carb, high protein diet, I’m always looking for ways to keep it interesting with tastes and textures.
So, I decided to make this tuna salad with egg recipe that my Mom used to make ever since I was a kid.
Tuna Salad with Egg
I remember the first time my Mom made this recipe I thought tuna salad and egg salad just don’t go together!
But then I tasted it and it was heavenly!
As a matter of fact, everything my Mom made was heavenly, so I don’t know why I thought this would be any different!
Weight Watchers Zero Point Foods
And the beautiful thing about this recipe is that several of the ingredients are on the Weight Watchers’ zero point food lists for their blue & purple plans!
Turns out tuna, eggs, and unsweetened pickles are all zero points for the blue and purple plans.
So technically, this recipe only has points because I used reduced calorie mayo.
However, if I had used fat free mayo, this recipe would only be 1 SmartPoint!
Gotta love it!
how long is tuna salad with eggs good for?
This will last you 3 to 7 days as long as you keep it refrigerated.
It’s a great excuse to get a big can of tuna and a few hard boiled eggs so that you can make a big batch at a time.
That way you’ll have leftovers ready to eat for the week.
What Can I add To My Tuna Salad with Egg?
You can add whatever ingredients you want to!
Of course this could affect the total SmartPoints value depending on what you add.
However, most likely it won’t.
For instance, here are some zero point ingredients you can add to your tuna salad with egg:
- Chopped celery
- Chopped spring onions
- Water chestnuts
- Alfalfa sprouts
- Bean sprouts
- Chopped cucumber
- Chopped peppers
- Thinly sliced radishes
- Chopped tomatoes
As you can see, there are multiple ways you can make your very own version of this recipe.
I used mainly Aldi ingredients for my recipe because that’s where I shop most of the time.
I love their foods and their prices!

I used leftover hard boiled Easter eggs.
However, anytime of year, it’s good to have a few hard boiled eggs on hand in the refrigerator to quickly grab and eat.
My dog Sarge was intently watching me as I prepared my tuna egg salad.
I think he thought he was going to get a bite.
As mentioned above, I would have added more ingredients, such as cucumbers, celery, and spring onions if I had them.
That’s what’s great about this recipe is that you can switch it up so many different ways.
Because I’m eating low carb and high protein, I added a side of parmesan crisps.
The parmesan crisps gave it that added crunch and made for the perfect lunch!
12 of these particular parmesan crisps add an additional 3 Weight Watchers SmartPoints.
