Tuno Melts

Tuno Melts and a Nayonaise Giveaway

This contest is now closed that the TWO lucky winners are… acd6pack who uses vegan mayo to whip up some delicious (and fresh!) sounding vegan BLTs Carol who’s whipping up some vegan burgers in Canada, and Kathy who wants try a new kind Renee who tops her veggie burgers with the creamy vegan deliciousness down here in the US. Congratulations to you both! (Neither of the original winners responded, so I picked two more!)

You don’t need wikileaks to tell you that I love me some “tuno” salad (aka vegan tuna salad) because I’ll gladly shout it from the rooftops! It’s easy, it’s delicious, it’s versatile and it’s healthy.

This time, however, I switched up my usual recipe just a bit. I had received a couple bottles of the (new and improved!) Nayonaise to review, including a bottle of their brand new nayo whipped, a vegan alternative to miracle whip! I used the nayo whipped, slathered the tuno salad on toast, topped it with some vegan cheese and myself some Vegan Tuno Melts!

Tuno Melts and a Nayonaise Giveaway

I really enjoyed the flavor of the nayo whipped, very tangy and sweet (which I love). The only issue I had was that it seemed to separate very quickly in the bottle, which wasn’t the most appetizing look. But please don’t let that stop you from giving this new product a try- the flavor was wonderful and it worked perfectly in all the recipes and sandwiches I used it in!

Tuno Melts and a Nayonaise Giveaway

So here’s the recipe for my melts… but don’t forget to scroll all the way down for the giveaway deets- we have prizes for a US winner AND a Canadian winner! Woot!

    My favorite way to use vegan mayonnaise is the chick’n salad with cranberries and pistachios from your website. I just love that recipe! 🙂

  • Laura July 12, 2013, 9:07 am

    Love using vegan mayonnaise (I only use Nayonaise as it comes in a delicious yet light, low calorie version) as a base for “creamy” salad dressings. All the creamy goodness without the dairy, egg, etc. USA

  • Maybel July 12, 2013, 9:17 am

    I have to go with a simple mashed chickpeas and lemon juice salad! But this tuno melt is making me hungry…

  • Sarah July 12, 2013, 9:57 am

    I got to try their revamped Nayo at Vida Vegan in May, the tiny muffins they served were sooo good!

  • Sarah July 12, 2013, 9:59 am

    Oops, and I forgot to add, in the US.

  • Terri Cole July 12, 2013, 10:08 am

    I’m trying to do the low/no oil thing, so I don’t use a ton of mayo. But I do like a bit on my sandwiches and veggie burgers. Probably the biggest use is your tuno salad or the rare potato salad.

    I use vegenaise on burgers and sandwiches and that is about it. My non-vegan partner uses it in a Gwyneth Paltrow fish recipe. I live in Canada

  • Rita July 12, 2013, 12:13 pm

    I have been a die hard Veganaise fan… didn’t know this existed… and now you tell me that there is Nayonaise whipped?! … I checked my local whole foods store and they don’t carry the whipped version… I want to cry… but oh well… that’s why I’m entering this giveaway… thank yous!!

    • Rita July 12, 2013, 5:29 pm

      I’m in Merca!! … States… 🙂

  • Marquesa July 12, 2013, 12:15 pm

    I have never tried the nayonaise but I do like veganaise that my husband has purchased before. I use sparingly since I am trying to avoid fat, but the flavor is good.

  • Marquesa July 12, 2013, 12:16 pm

    I forgot to say I live in the states.

  • Hanna July 12, 2013, 12:25 pm

    I use it to make vegan ranch all the time, and I put it in my Mac and “cheese” to make it creamy. We go through probably way more faux mayo in this house than we should!

  • Sarah C July 12, 2013, 6:54 pm

    I love it for my jicama carrot cabbage cole slaw!

  • Hannah July 12, 2013, 7:34 pm

    The timing of our reviews is too funny! We must be thinking on the same wavelength again… I’m also relieved to hear that I wasn’t the only one who experienced that strange texture.

    Now I know what I want to do with the rest of my jar, at least. That tuno looks delicious!

  • acd6pack July 13, 2013, 3:43 am

    Tomatoes and lettuce, fresh from the garden, some homemade facon and a light smear of vegan mayo for my version of a “bacon”, lettuce and tomato sandwich. Toasted of course, using homemade bread. YUM! Can’t wait for the first tomatoes from the garden, here in Canada!

  • Aimee Douglass July 13, 2013, 8:53 am

    I love Nayonnaise in a tuno salad sandwich. I’ve even gotten my omni husband to use it.

  • Amy July 13, 2013, 10:39 am

    Curried tofu salad with mayo and grapes and almonds!

  • RubyShooZ July 13, 2013, 12:13 pm

    I don’t use a whole lot of it either but I do like it in my chickpea salad and I know there are other things I use it for but cannot remember now that I’m asked. I live in the states.

  • Gabby @ the veggie nook July 14, 2013, 10:54 am

    Now I have never been one for mayo, even in my pre-vegan days. But what I love to use it for- cookies!! Secret ingredient 😉

  • Moo July 14, 2013, 4:37 pm

    The favourite was to nayonnaise is for untuna sandwiches or casseroles. I live in USA.

  • Jess C July 15, 2013, 1:18 pm

    I’m not a big red sauce fan so I mix vegan mayo with roasted garlic for a yummy pizza sauce!

    Thanks!!! ☺

  • R Morris July 15, 2013, 1:58 pm

    I use Veganaise in everything and love it! Thanks for the chance.

  • Melissa July 15, 2013, 2:48 pm

    I like to use veganaise on my vegan BLTs!

    • Melissa July 15, 2013, 2:50 pm

      I would love to try Nayonaise in it’s place. I’m in the US.

  • Renee July 15, 2013, 6:30 pm

    I like to use it on veggie burgers. I think that’s my favourite. I’m in the U.S.

  • Reia@TheCrueltyFreeReview July 15, 2013, 7:13 pm

    Did you get the Daiya slices at Nooch? I have yet to see any of the sliced versions at Whole Foods… 🙁

  • Ronda July 17, 2013, 8:06 pm

    I’m in the US and I mostly use Nayonnaise in potato or pasta salad, but occasionally on sandwiches.

  • Heather July 29, 2013, 10:12 am
