The perfect quick and healthy lunch idea, this Basic Tuna Salad Recipe is so easy to make and is so tasty!

Made with nonfat 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 help to give it a very similar flavor to the mayo version, and the celery and onion add crunch and flavor.

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 it up the traditional way on two slices of low calorie bread.

You really can’t go wrong with this Tuna Salad Recipe.

    Pretty good. I think I would cut down on the amount of yogurt though.  

  2. THIS IS A GREAT RECIPE. I HAVE NEVER BEEN A FAN OF SUBSTITUTING YOGURT FOR MAYO, BUT THIS HAD ALL THE TANG AND SMOOTHNESS I CRAVE. I DID ADD SOME PICKLE RELISH AND SOME DIJON. NICE TO HAVE A TUNA FISH SANDWICH ONCE AGAIN!
