Open faced tuna salad sandwiches that won't destroy your diet.


6 ounces Tuna; 1 can, water packed
1 stalk Celery; chopped fine
2 medium Scallions; chopped fine
1 tablespoon Pickle relish, sweet
1/4 cup Plain yogurt; fat-free
1 teaspoon Lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon Black pepper
1 pinch Kosher salt
4 slices Whole grain bread; Toasted
2 slices Non-fat Cheese slices
4 slices Fresh Tomato
4 leaves Fresh looseleaf lettuce; Diabetic option

Original recipe makes 4 Servings



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.

I love it. Although I would heat the tomatoes with a little bit of olive oil till its tender. I dislike the taste of tomatoes and tuna together. Overall it is a great sandwich thank you.
