Most tuna salads are dripping in mayonnaise. But why settle for such a high-fat ordinary-tasting treatment? In this alternative version, lemon juice, plain yogurt, and Dijon mustard add moisture and tanginess.


  • 1 can white or light tuna in water, drained
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon pickle relish
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon minced onion
  • 4 slices wheat bread
  • Lettuce and tomato
