Tuna Salad Recipe


Tuna Salad Recipe
Kimberley K. Eggleston
A good old tuna salad sandwich is a favorite around our house. However, ordinary tuna salad, though it seems it should be, is not necessarily low in calories or fat! Afterall, what makes tuna salad especially delicious is the mayonnaise based dressing. This version keeps the flavor nice with some mayo, but also uses one of our favorite dressing substitutes: plain yogurt. The yogurt helps to keep the salad creamy without adding too many extra calories and fat.


  • 1 5 oz. can light tuna in water, drained
  • 2 Tbsp reduced fat mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbsp plain lowfat yogurt
  • 1 medium-sized dill pickle, chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp chopped sweet onion
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • pinch or ground black pepper


1. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the drained tuna, mayonnaise, lowfat yogurt, dill pickle, celery, onion, dijon mustard and black pepper. Use a fork to combine the mixture well.

2. Serve the tuna salad atop of whole wheat bread with crisp lettuce, or top a bed of greens with the tuna salad.
