Sounds good and I will try it. But that's a lot of sodium. Submitted by:

I make something very similar, but a lot less fattening... I add 1 tsp. mustard to the tuna mix for some extra zing and I use wasa fibre crispbread instead of the english muffin. Submitted by:

This is delicious! I actually did not use the cheese but added 1 tbsp of flaxseed and mushrooms which were yummy.

It took me forever to realize why my calories were higher than those listed here. Then I realized this is for TWO SERVINGS!!!

Yum! I didn't have relish and my boys wouldn't have liked it anyways... did add mushrooms and topped with a slice of yellow and red pepper b/c I didn't have tomato! Nice & quick ~ my tuna was only 120 cal a can and 300mg sodium so I will have to refigure nut value! tx. Submitted by:

You can increase fiber and lower calorie count by using a Thomas light whole grain English muffin. I make this with a laughing cow light cheese wedge--only 35 calories. You can also add olives, a little onion to the tuna. I use a tuna pouch, no draining & 80 calories Submitted by:

Great!It's so easy to make and taste fantastic! I did not end up using all the tuna and This meal ended up being about 409 calories according to my Nutrition Tacker. Which is fine! I will defiantly be making this again! Submitted by:

the calories don't seem correct because its two servings, not one. Submitted by:

I would think it would be five or six WW points ... Mayo - 1 pt., 2 pts for tuna, 1 or 2 for the English Muffin (Whole Wheat would be best), and depending on the weight of the Swiss cheese slice, it could be 3 points (better to used reduced fat). so more than 5 but less than 10 Submitted by:

AWILDER4 is right. The calories are based on 1 serving of tuna, not the whole can. It also only uses 1 tomato slice in it's calculation although the recipe says 2 slices. I know, not a big deal. But 1 serving tuna, vs the whole can (at 2.5 servings) is a big deal if you're counting calories. Submitted by:

170 calorie tuna??? The albacore tuna I use is only 70 calories per can - so I do think the recipe is correct. Submitted by:
