It was a little bland. I added pickled red onions, garlic salt, pepper, and a little bit of Heinz 57. Really good Submitted by:

This sounds delicious and different. I saved the recipe in my collection and will rate once I make it. I will try reducing the cottage cheese a little to reduce sodium. Submitted by:

Tastes great! And I’m always low on protein . Never imagined cottage cheese with tuna . Thanks for this great idea Submitted by:

I knocked out the cottage cheese (don't need two proteins in one meal) and upped the yogurt. And I used pickle juice instead of lemon juice. Pretty good. Submitted by:

not a fan of cottage cheese, to much sodium, next time I'll do what other commented on..
I added a bit of dill pickle and a splash of pickle juice for more flavor...

It happens that I have been making just this mayonnaise-less version for years; thought I invented it! It's phenomenal, isn't it! Sometimes I add hard-boiled eggs, or egg whites, just for the flavor and texture--not because it needs any more protein; and scallions, parsley, herbs and chopped pickl Submitted by:

It was okay to me but I think because I hate cottage cheese and couldn't get past that. Also it seems like an awful lot of sodium to me! Submitted by:

I found the flavor of this to be very sharp/sour, so I had to had a tablespoon of mayo to calm it down. I think the next time, I'll leave the lemon juice out. The finished product tasted just like regular tuna salad; good for the added protein, but not mind blowing. Hubby never noticed the diff. Submitted by:

Skip the cottage cheese and just use non-fat yogurt with all of the other ingredients for a lower calorie, practically zero fat version, but do not use an entire "stalk" of celery, just a few "ribs." Submitted by:

This is not anywhere near the best tuna salad recipe and I'm shocked by all of these positive reviews. If you are looking for a less fat, lower calorie tuna salad, then this one is just OK. Otherwise, stick to regular mayo instead of the chalky tasting cottage cheese. Barely edible. Submitted by:

People seem confused about the tuna can size for the full recipe. It is a 5 oz can, so the amount per serving is 2.5 oz since the recipe makes two servings. I do agree with the suggestion of using Fage non-fat Greek yogurt instead of the low fat yogurt (excellent flavor & texture). Submitted by:

I use thinly cut slices radish in my tuna fish a healthy nice crunch on wheat berry bread, with low fat miracle whip,my own special light seasoning and hard boil eggs.
Even my grandchildren love this sandwich serve with a dill pickle and chips and fruit juice.

Very good with some addition. I doubled the Dijon, and lemon juice. I also added a good bit of dill and a dash of sea salt and coarse black pepper. I like lots of flavor. I think next time less cottage cheese though it seems to be a bit much and overpowers the tuna. But I don't miss the mayo!! Submitted by:

It's not for everyone, but personally I liked it and it's awesome that it's so filling, high in protein, but low cal. Needs some flavoring so I just added salt. Submitted by:
