The perfect quick and healthy lunch idea, this Basic Tuna Salad Recipe is so easy to make and is so tasty! Made with non-fat Greek yogurt instead of mayo, this version is a LOT lighter than a traditional tuna salad recipe. The fresh lemon, dill, and tang of the yogurt helps to give it a very similar flavor to the mayo version, and the celery and onion add crunch and flavor. The best part is that you get a whole 1 cup serving for just 3 Points +! Serve it over a bed of lettuce for a fresh lunch salad, use it as a dip for some low fat crackers or pita chips, or just serve up the traditional way on two slices of low calorie bread. You really can’t go wrong with this Tuna Salad Recipe.
Basic Tuna Salad Recipe
Quick to make, yet delicious and filling, this low calorie tuna salad recipe is a staple in my Weight Watchers Recipes.
- 2 cans chunk light tuna in water
- 1/2 cup plain, non-fat Greek yogurt
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- 2 celery stalks, trimmed and finely chopped
- 1 tbsp fresh dill, chopped
- 1 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- Combine all ingredients in a medium sized bowl.
If you prefer your tuna salad to be creamier, go ahead and add some extra yogurt! It’s so low calorie that you can use an additional 1/2 cup (into the entire recipe) and it won’t increase the Points+ value!
