Low-Fat Tuna Fish Salad

I love tuna fish salad sandwiches.   Now that I'm trying to eat a little healthier, I had to play around with my normal recipe.  I think this tastes very good.  I put it on a bed of lettuce, but it would also be great on whole-wheat thin bread.   I also like to have a small fruit salad with it.


LOW-FAT TUNA FISH SALAD:
(serves 2)

Ingredients:

*1 (5 ounce) can white tuna (water packed) drained and flaked
*4 tablespoons fat-free mayonnaise
*1/2 tablespoon parmesan cheese, grated
*1 teaspoon sweet relish
*1/2 tablespoon onion, minced
*1/2 tablespoon celery, chopped very small
*pinch garlic powder
*1/8 teaspoon curry powder
*1/2 teaspoon dill weed
*salt & pepper to taste
*1/2 tablespoon dried parsley
*Bed of lettuce
*5-6 cherry/grape tomatoes (optional)

Directions:
~Stir together in a medium bowl, tuna, mayonnaise, parmesan cheese, onions, & celery.
~Mix in seasonings.
~Let set for 15 minutes before using.
~Put clean lettuce on plate.
~Scoop tuna salad on top of lettuce.
~Cut tomatoes in half and place around tuna salad.

Hi Barb, I often substitute plain Greek yogurt for mayonnaise in my recipes. I especially like it in my favorite chicken salad recipe. Your tuna salad looks good too.
