Replacing butter/spread in sandwiches etc

Hey, if you make a sandwich, eg just tuna and toast, what could I use to replace the butter which doesn't leave the sandwich fairly dry?  Just removing butter leaves it fairly dry and not as nice.  Anyone got any good ideas?

Depends the reason for removing butter.  If it's just calories olive oil or mayo are going to be just as bad.  I have actually never heard of putting butter on a tuna sandwich.  Mustard is very low calorie, as are dill pickle slices but pickle is loaded with sodium if thats an issue.

There's almost no way to eat tuna without adding some sort of fat to it.  The only thing that I could think of is a low-fat plain yogurt, but I wouldn't really recommend it.  Fat is pretty vital to bodily functions and you really don't want to cut it all out.  Also, it makes canned tuna tolerable.  I'm not sure the yogurt trick would work.

Interesting suggestions, thanks for them, I'll give some of them a go!

Light mayo is better for calories than butter. But real butter is SO good.

Light spreadable butter (not a spread, spreadable butter, different) is a good alternative too. In England the best brand i've found is Lurpak, no idea about other countries.

Sweet chilli sauce if you like that.

I usually use brown mustard or Dijon mustard. (Make sure to look at the labels first, obviously... as usual, some brands are crap.) Avocado is a great idea, but I've never tried it. If you're thinking of getting rid of the toast (like some have suggested), consider adding chopped pecans or walnuts, or maybe cubed pickles, if you still want a bit of crunch.
