Fun With Food: Classic Tuna Salad

Print Friendly

I didn’t have a lot of appreciation for this growing up, but I’ve found in recent years, that over-eager application of mayonnaise ruined many a perfectly good childhood dish. In my version, I use plain greek yogurt because I like the light, tangy flavor. The trick here is to make sure your tuna is so well drained that it’s practically dehydrated before you mix it with the other ingredients.

1- 4 oz can Starkist Tuna Fish In Water, drained, very, VERY well

1 Tbsp Sweet Relish (you can use dill if you prefer)

1 Tbsp  Nonfat Plain Greek Yogurt

1 stalk of green onion, thinly sliced

Salt and Pepper

10- Six Seed Potter’s Crackers (or whatever flavor you prefer)

 

Drain the tuna really well. I recommend draining it over paper towels while you measure out the rest of the ingredients just to be sure. When it’s drained, mix with the yogurt onion, and relish. Season with salt and pepper to taste (if you’re feeling sassy, you could add a pinch of cayenne, garlic, or onion powder). Eat with the crackers.
