{ Skinny Kickin’ Tuna Melts }

Tuna recipes can be healthy and delicious people! They don’t always have to be loaded with mayo and added calories. I’m letting you in on a little secret that makes my tuna recipe high in protein and just a little bit healthier. Fat free plain greek yogurt. My husband and his co-workers don’t know exactly why the tuna is so yummy, but they sure love it. Also, to keep things southern (and more delicious) I add just a sprinkle of cajun seasoning to take boring old tuna to the next level.

So skinny and low carb you will have room for { Skinny S’mores Ice Cream Sandwiches } for dessert.

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
  • 4 large slices tomato
  • 4 slices colby jack cheese – low fat if preferred
  • 4 large romaine leaves
  • 4 T green onion, chopped
  • 2-3 T creole seasoning

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

2) Lay your tuna salad over cheese and large tomato slices.

3) On a small baking sheet, melt in the toaster or broiler just until cheese melts. Top with green onion. Sprinkle with creole seasoning. Serve alongside some romaine lettuce.

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.
