Tuna Salad Recipe Card

I wanted to find a healthier way to make tuna salad with less mayonnaise. I looked on the internet and found this one, tried it out, and liked it (DH even likes it and he does NOT typically like "healthy" recipes, lol!). The secret ingredient is plain, low-fat yogurt!! I would have never thought to use that before seeing this recipe.



The card measures 5" x 7". The stamped image is from Penny Black and it was colored with Copics...and of course, I added Stickles on different parts of the image. :)

In case the recipe is too small on your screen and you're interested, here it is:

2 cans chunk light tuna, drained of water
2 tbsp relish
1/2 tbsp mayonnaise
1/2 tbsp Dijon mustard
1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt

Place all ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine. Measure out five 1/4 cup servings. Calories per serving = 104 (1.4 g fat, 4 g carb, 3 g sugar, 18.1 protein, 0 fiber).

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!

This is so cute!!! I love the image you added to this recipe card, and the recipe sounds great! I tried adding some plain greek yogurt to my tuna salad a while ago, but my DH has more refined taste buds and hates it! LOL

This is a gorgeous recipe card. To be honest, if you dont tell it is a low fat recipe people dont notice and happily eat it. It is when you tell them, they say it. low fat yoghurt and low fat soft cheese are often substitutes in low fat recipes. Try a low fat recipe on the other half, but dont tell him. tell him it is a full fat version.
