This weekend I wanted something light for lunch and I found a healthy recipe for tuna salad - with barely any mayonnaise! Not only are the dijon mustard and sweet pickle relish an uncanny combination with the tuna, but the fresh vegetables and homemade salad dressing make this a great choice for a low calorie summer lunch.
Add your friends, family, and a bottle of white wine and you cannot go wrong.
Tuna Salad Ingredients
2 cans of light tuna (6 oz.)
1/2 cup no-fat probiotic plain yogurt
2.5 tablespoons pickle relish
1/2 tablespoon light mayo
2 tablespoons dijon mustard
Green Salad Ingredients
1 small bunch of arugula
1 tomato, sliced
1 cucumber, sliced
salt to taste
Fresh Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing Ingredients:
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
3 tablespoons of olive oil
1 clove of garlic, minced
Start with making the tuna salad. Measure out and mix the tuna, yogurt, mayonnaise, dijon mustard, and pickle relish in a bowl.
Second, wash the arugula and place it on your plate. Arrange the sliced tomatoes and cucumbers creatively on top of the arugula, and add a dash of salt to taste. Scoop and place the mixed tuna salad in the center.
Finally, combine the ingredients for the balsamic vinaigrette dressing in a small bowl or glass and drizzle on your finished salad! Serves 2.
a buen tiempo!
