Tuna recipes often get a bad reputation for being loaded with mayo and loaded in calories.  Luckily one secret ingredient can change all that – Fat free plain greek yogurt! Chobani would do just the trick. Here is how I mix up tuna salad that my husband and his co-workers rave about. Served over romaine lettuce and with a few fresh veggies, its a healthy wholesome meal, perfect for spring. The Cajun kick at the end makes it all worthwhile.

For about 4 servings:

  • 2 large cans chunk light tuna in water, drained
  • 5 tablespoons fat free greek plain yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons light mayo
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 cups diced celery
  • lots of cracked black pepper
  • sea salt to taste
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cup bell peppers, diced
  • 1 T EVOO
  • 4 large romaine leaves
  • 4 T green onion, chopped
  • 2-3 T creole seasoning

1) Saute your tomatoes and bell peppers in EVOO over medium heat until tender. Crack salt and black pepper over top. Allow time to cool.

2) Mix your tuna with mayo, yogurt, black pepper and salt, celery, red wine vinegar.

3) Lay your tuna salad over large leaves of romaine lettuce. Top with your tomato and bell pepper mixture.  Top with green onion. Sprinkle with creole seasoning.

This recipe can be modified to your tastes. If you want it extra skinny, you can dial down the mayo and the yogurt, but if you want it creamier, bump up the yogurt and mayo.
