Lower Cal. Diet Tuna Spread

Submitted by: ONEREALLYBIGDOG

Introduction

I found that if I changed the ingredients this diet tuna spread could be reduced to next to nothing for calories. I believe my recipe is about 19 calories per serving compared to the original version that had 38 calories per serving (THAT' HALF THE CALORIES). The tuna i chose was lower, I omitted the cheese and my choice of salad dressing is ZERO CALORIE, ZERO FAT AND IT ACTUALLY TASTES GOOD. Give this recipe a try if you like tuna salad but don't like all the calories. Actually, I even like this WITHOUT the dressing, so maybe you should try it BEFORE you add your dressing. Good luck and happy healthy eating! I found that if I changed the ingredients this diet tuna spread could be reduced to next to nothing for calories.

Ingredients

    3 Cans of Starkist Chunk Light Tuna in WATER-drained
    6 Dill Pickle Spears, diced up
    1/2 cup of diced onion
    4 Poached Egg Whites (Yolks removed) or leave in if you desire but add calories and fat to your daily intake.

Directions

Start by poaching your eggs, after they cool, I remove the egg yolks because of the calories and the fat in those yolks. Dice up the cooked egg whites and add to a mixing bowl. Add 3 cans of drained tuna, Dice the pickle spears and the onion and add to the mixture. Then I toss the mixture a bit then add the dressing and mix again. This calls for 24 servings but with this recipe you can afford to eat much more! Give this a try, it's even More Diet than the original!!!!
