Kiki’s Tuna Mayo Mix

Looking for Yumbox-approved recipe inspiration? Look no further. Mini Hippo brand ambassador and lunch box extraordinaire, George Georgievski (of @schoollunchbox) is here to share his go-to school recipes. Today, a tuna mayo mix requested by his youngest, Kiki.

Do your kids get bored of having the same sandwich fillings day in day out? Kiki, my youngest, asked me to get creative with tuna. This fun sandwich filing can be added to any wrap, sandwich or salad mix. It is super healthy and so easy to make that these days Kiki makes this one for herself.

Serves 2


  • 2 x 95 g cans of tuna (in springwater)

  • 120 g (1/2 cup) mayonnaise 1/4 red onion, finely diced

  • 1/4 cup finely chopped flat-leaf parsley leaves

  • 8 iceberg lettuce leaves, washed and dried


  1. Put the tuna (it’s OK if some of the springwater goes in), mayo, red onion and parsley in a mixing bowl and give it a really good stir with a fork – you want the tuna to be completely covered in the mayo.
  2. Line up your lettuce leaves so that they serve as cups, placing them directly into the lunchbox – I use four lettuce cups for each serve. Divide the filling between the lettuce cups and pop on the lid. It’s as simple as that.
  3. Pop the lunchbox into a cooler bag with an ice block.

Tips: This tuna mix can be added to a roll, sandwich or wrap. You can even use it in a California roll.
