Prep Time10 mins

Total Time10 mins


  • 4 Whole Pickles*
  • 1 5 Ounces Can of Tuna drained and flaked**
  • 1/4 Cup Mayonnaise or Greek yogurt
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons Parmesan grated
  • 3 Tablespoons Celery chopped
  • 1/4 Cup Yellow Onions finely chopped
  • 2 Teaspoons Lemon Juice
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Curry Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Dill chopped
  • 1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder

Optional Toppings:

  • Tomatoes diced
  • Dill chopped


  • Cut the pickles in half lengthwise and use a spoon to scoop out the seeds and some of the flesh to form a "boat". The amount you scoop out of the pickle will depend on your taste -- obviously for more pickle flavor, only remove the seeds. For less, remove more flesh.
  • Place all other ingredients in a large bowl and stir to combine.
  • Taste and adjust seasoning to your liking.
  • Spoon the tuna salad into each of the prepared boats. Top with diced tomatoes and fresh dill. Enjoy!

Lindsey's Tips

Pickles - Many pickles contain added sugar, check the labels before purchasing a product. We love Vlasic.
Tuna. The easiest way to flake the tuna is with a fork in a shallow bowl. I prefer smaller pieces here.
