A fresh and healthy tuna salad recipe made with nonfat Greek yogurt, celery, apples, grapes, and walnuts and served open-faced on whole grain bread (235 calories or 4 WW points).
Tuna salad sandwiches are a lunchtime mainstay but they can pack a lot of calories when made with traditional mayo. To lighten it up, I skip the mayo and use nonfat Greek yogurt and add lots of fresh, flavorful mix-ins like crunchy celery, sweet grapes and apple, and toasted walnuts for a heart-healthy dose of fat.
Another easy way to make a healthy tuna salad sandwich (or any sandwich, really) is by serving it open-faced, and piling your sandwich fillings on top of one piece of bread instead of two. It slashes the calories while still allowing you to enjoy all the toasted goodness of bread (#YesToBread), and how could you not love that?
It’s a cinch to make this healthy tuna salad and it’s a great recipe to make ahead and keep in the fridge for quick lunches. When you’re ready to eat, toast a slice of your favorite whole grain bread and top it with a scoop of tuna salad for a delicious, nutritious meal.
