Basic tuna salad for sandwiches/salads

Submitted by: LADYPIXEL

Introduction

This is a very basic tuna salad to use for sandwiches or to top a green salad. Milk replaces part of the mayo to reduce the fat and sodium content slightly. We like a lot of green onion, but you can add more celery to give it body and 'crunch' if you want. This is a very basic tuna salad to use for sandwiches or to top a green salad.

    This gave a nice flavor to the tuna without all the mayo. I reduced the recipe to 1 can since I'm the only one in my house who eats tuna. It was delicious on a toasted Thomas Everything Bagel Thin for 300 calories total. - 4/19/10

  • Try this with plain greek yogurt instead of mayo. Cuts the fat, boosts protein, and still tastes creamy! - 2/13/12
