Mayoless Tuna Salad

If there is one thing you should know about my food tastes is that I hate mayonnaise. Hate might actually be a bit too soft. I deplore it. I really like tuna, but it is my opinion that most people ruin it with gobs of mayo. I decided it was time to figure out a tuna salad recipe that did not use mayonnaise for all the haters out there like me.

Whenever I have had tuna in the past, I just through together a bunch of spices and poured them in and hoped for the best. I saw this recipe on Eating Out Loud and decided it was a perfect starting point to refine my tuna recipe. I mentioned before that I also hate olives so I thought capers (YUM) were the perfect substitution. I also threw in  few spices that I enjoyed on my tuna before.

I served this on a baguette with the insides scopped out. I'm sure it would work well on any type of bread, or if you prefer, on its own.
