Low Fat Tuna Sandwich (Diabetic Option) Preparation
Blend together Tuna, celery, Scallions, and relish. Blend the lemon juice into the yogurt and add to the tuna mixture. Season to taste with salt & pepper.
Spread 1/4 of the mixture on each slice of toast. Top with 1/2 slice of cheese and pop it under the broiler (on in the toaster oven) just long enough to melt the cheese.
Garnish with a tomato slice, lightly sprinkled with pepper.
The creaminess of the yogurt combined with the tang of the lemon makes a low fat replacement for the traditional mayo used in tuna salad.
