Ingredients

    1 can albacore tuna
    2/3 cup non-fat cottage cheese
    4 tablespoons plain low-fat yogurt

    1 stalk celery, chopped finely

Directions

This beats the socks off any and all tuna salads I have ever had. And it's healthier too! By the way, I make lunches for my whole week of work so I usually triple the recipe and it makes six sandwiches.

Just throw into a bowl, give it a good mix and ENJOY!

    I make this recipe with normal tuna instead of albacore. I've also made it with water chestnuts & green onions instead of celery. I decreased the cottage cheese (because of the sodium) & I use non-fat plain greek yogurt. This is fabulous on cucumber rounds instead of bread! - 1/23/11

    I blended the cottage cheese first to make it more creamy...it was great! - 8/22/09

    I love mayo-based anything, so I was a bit skeptical of this, but it was SO DELICIOUS, super healthy, so much protein! I used lime juice instead of lemon, apples instead of celery, no dill, and a tiny bit of Lawry's seasoned salt. OMG Yummy!! - 2/25/11

    Awesome! I did not have dill so I added minced dill pickle. I started with 2 TBS of FF Greek Yogurt and 1/3 C FF cottage cheese and found it to be more than sufficient. Thanks so much for this recipe--it is a keeper! - 10/13/10

    Beautiful! Delicious, super-easy, healthful. At first missed lemon juice & accidentally heavy on cottage cheese & onion. After tasting, splash (~tsp) lemon juice, more dill (total 1.25 tsp), seasoned salt & fresh black pepper. Extraodinary. Strongly recommend start w/ original (dill!) THANKS - 3/30/12
